Grace Gifford y Joseph Plunkett, un amor destinado a la desgracia.

El video muestra imágenes del Easter rising o Levantamiento de Pascua por la Independencia de Irlanda en Abril-Mayo de 1916,  con el tema GRACE por The Wolfe Tones que cuenta la despedida entre el patriota Joseph Plunkett y la joven Grace Gifford con la que se casó en la capilla de la cárcel de Kilmainham Gaol, en las horas previas a su ejecución por el pelotón de fusilamiento el 5 de Mayo de 1916.

Grace Gifford


As we gather in the chapel here in Old Kilmainham Jail
I think about these past few days, oh will they say we've failed
From our schooldays they have told us we must yearn for liberty
Yet all I want in this dark place is to have you here wlth me


Oh Grace just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger,
They take me out at dawn and I will die
With all my love I place this wedding ring upon your finger
There won't be time to share our love for we must say goodbye
Now I know it's hard for you my love to ever understand
the love I bear for these brave men, my love for this dear land
But when Padhraic called me to his side down in the GPO
I had to leave my own sick bed, to him I had to go


Now as the dawn is breaking, my heart is breaking too
On this May morn as I walk out my thoughts will be of you
And I'll write some words upon the wall so everyone wlll know
I love so much that I could see his blood upon the rose
