1916walkingtour: Patrick Pearse is the most obvious author. Doubtless there was some input from the other Military Council members – especially James Connolly – and it’s hard to imagine that poets Thomas MacDonagh and Joseph Plunkett did not add to the content.

MaryMcAuliffe4: 2/ ..he was a tall man, over 6 feet, with broad shoulders slightly stooped from long hours as a student & writer. But he had a soldierly bearing, very cool & determined. Thomas MacDonagh was also there ...he had given me a fine revolver. It would be one of my proudest possessions

MikeParcej: Nov 8 Hexham. A Sandwich meeting. The two pieces of bread, Ribble Valley and Thomas Macdonagh, gave us the best wins, but the meat inbetween, Wor Verge, Saint Freule, No Trumps and Square Viviani, weren't bad either. Sorry to note Her Majesty didn't make it up to see her winner!!

TarbhEireann: I hate that most of the leaders of 1916 have been forgotten by the masses, their memories going into the collective "Men of '16". Éamonn Ceannt, Thomas Clarke, Thomas MacDonagh and Seán MacDiarmada aren't mentioned nearly enough. Plunkett is remembered through the song.

RizzelTips: ...two hurdle runs suggest that a drop in trip could suit. He recently finished 2nd to promising novice hurdler, Thomas Macdonagh. He was giving him a competetive race for the most part, but faded late on. Connor Brace takes the, and he's arguably the best 3lb claimer in the UK.
