This is a very important piece of Irish cultural and political history. For it to leave Ireland in this commemoration year is a disgrace to the memory of the people who sacrificed so much for Ireland

I'm signing because it is through documents like this that a country's memory is held together and passed on to other generations. The Minister has a duty to protect that memory.

I am signing because I am Irish American and my ancestors were there when this happened! And my people did leave during the famine! I have a love for Ireland knowing it is the homeland of my ethnic background! What was done to Ireland by England, the British, was absolute brutal control and insanity! Ireland was never theirs to take, and Ireland was never England's period! The English kept trying to control and impose their ways on the Irish people for hundreds of years, and they did so through rape, torture, and murder! This document should never leave Ireland, and should be placed in Irish History forever for future generations to see what these brave men and women went through for their Freedom today!

Thanks for adding your voice.

I'm signing to demonstrate that Pearse's surrender letter is recognised world wide by the Irish diaspora (I am a second generation member of the diaspora, my paternal Grandfather having emigrated from Waterford in the 1890s) as a priceless document, and as important as any of the artifacts I was privileged to view in the exhibition at Collins Barracks, earlier this year.
