Printed ‘Target’ Card signed by Constance Markievicz


A printed ‘Target’ card which was used for practice by Constance Markievicz, and also by members of the Fianna, Irish Volunteers and the Irish Citizen Army. It was used for practice in the grounds of Joseph’s Plunkett’s house ‘Larkfield’ in Kimmage, Dublin. The target board is signed “Constance de Markievicz” and has seven perforations, two in the bullseye.

It is owned by the Sligo Markievicz Memorial Committee. Joe McGowan of that committee has kindly given us permission to post a photo of it here. Thank you Joe!!

The target card was originally issued by W. Kavanagh & Son, gun makers, 12 Dame St., Dublin.
