Sure now, you'll

have to get back

And give the boys a

chance to get through here.

Come on, now! This is a

great day for old Ireland.

Hooray!

Friends...

Many of you brought away

with you a handful of Irish sod,

To keep green

your memories of home.

But you needn't have.

You didn't leave

Ireland behind you.

It's in your hearts...

Wherever you go.

That's what these two months

in America have taught me,

That wherever

you find an Irishman,

You also find

the generosity...

And the loyalty...

And the passion

for freedom

Which is the soul

of Ireland herself.

Give Ireland

back to the Irish!

Get home rule

for Ireland!

That's what we're going

to do, in time,

And the day is nearer

than some think.

And now I must

go back to Ireland.

I can't start thanking you

for all you've done.

This boat would never sail.

But Ill just say...

And I know you'll

say it with me...

God save Ireland.

Good-Bye,

Parnell!

Go home

and save Ireland!

In two minutes, we'll be

shaking hands with him again.

I doubt if any man's

return has ever

Been so waited

for... or needed.

Its a dangerous thing when one man

Is as important

as all that.

Not when that

man's Parnell.

Here he comes

now, sir.

I'd be ticklish to arrest

Parnell here in all this crowd.

Ticklish? Dangerous,

if I may say so, sir.

We better make

the arrest on the road.

Hop in.

Oh!

Mr. Parnell!

Glory be!

The saints be praised for

bringing you back to us!

That's a grand welcome

he's getting.

Yes, he certainly seems

popular with the rabble.

Come along, and

Ill introduce you.

No, not here.

Why not?

There's such a thing as a

psychological moment, general,

And this isn't it.

When I meet him, I don't

want to be in competition

With a crowd of

unwashed hooligans.

Did you see me

cousin Patrick?

And me nephew Dennis Cogan?

Is it true

that you can pick up gold

Off the streets

of new york city

Like you can shamrocks on the roadside

Here in Ireland?

There's gold and love

And help for Ireland

in new york city...

Or wherever

you find an Irishman.

There he goes.

Follow him.

Watch your feet.

Oh, it's good to be

home again, Michael.

We've needed you.

Are things as bad here

as you wrote me?

Oh, worse.

You're bound to see

it as we go along.

Evictions, outrages,

house burnings.

It all began again

the minute you left.

You're the only one

who could do anything,

With the English

or the Irish.

Look.

Is it the rent?

Are you the sheriff?

Yes, your honor.

What do these

people owe?

8 pound.

I'll pay it.

Too late

for that, sir.

The landlord wants

them evicted.

Who is the landlord?

Pat Hogan.

Where is he?

Here he comes

now, sir.

Are you pat Hogan?

What's that to you?

You're landlord

here.

I'll pay these

people's rent.

You'll not!

Why not?

I'd sooner let

the land for grazing.

That's what

Im going to do.

And leave them

homeless?

I'm within me rights.

Me rights by law.

Mr. Parnell?

Yes.

I'm sorry, sir,

but I...

I have a warrant

for your arrest.

What's that? You can't arrest him!

I'm terribly sorry

I have to do this.

That's

all right.

Now, what's it

for this time?

Seditious

utterances.

Well, Ive made

several utterances

That might be called

"seditious."

Now, where are you

taking me?

Kilmainham jail,

If it's all the same

to you, sir.

All right.

I'll go with you

in just a minute.

It's not much

you're losing here.

This is where me

father was born...

And lived and died...

And me father's

father before him.

It's all we have

or ever have had.

It's all we know.

There's

no place else.
