Home Rule Demonstration March 31st 1912 Committee badge. This demonstration took place in O’Connell Street, Dublin. Four platforms were erected close to the Parnell monument, which Redmond had unveiled six months previously. John Redmond was the principle speaker at the first platform. John Dillon, Joseph Devlin and Eoin MacNeill spoke on the other platforms. The meeting opened with the singing of ‘A Nation Once Again.’ Redmond spoke of how Home Rule would "enable Ireland, with dignity and self-respect to enter for the first time into co-partnership in the Empire with perfect good faith and with perfect loyalty on a footing of equality and of liberty."
