to
CHARLES STEWART PARNELL

"no man has a right to fix the
boundary to the march of a nation
no man has a right
to sat to his country
thus far shalt thou
go and no further
we have never
attempted to fix
the ne plus ultra
to the progress of
irelands nationhood
and we never shall
Go soirbhighidh dia
Éire dá clainn

(The Irish quote translates as: That God may make Ireland flourish for her people).
