1916 Leaders and Esperanto

Ireland is busily celebrating the centenary of the 1916 Rising in the coming months, but one fact that escaped my notice was that one of the signatories of the Proclamation, Joseph Plunkett, founded the Irish Esperanto Association in 1907. It seems James Connolly, the founder of the Irish Labour Party, was also an Esperantist, along with other leading figures of the revolutionary period.
