Labor organizer James Connolly combined Irish nationalism with socialist criticism and a willingness for armed insurrection. His influence extended as far as the United States, where he played an active role in the Industrial Workers of the World (the "Wobblies"), to Russia, where they guided Lenin's thoughts on imperialism and colonialism. Connolly was executed by the British Government for his role in the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin.
