This is a postcard written in Irish from M. to Piaras Béaslaí (1881-1965) sent from Belfast. M misses Dublin and at the end of the post card tells Piaras to 'Tell Tadhg Scannell to do that thing.'
Piaras Béaslaí (born Percy Frederick Beazley) was an English born writer, revolutionary, politician, language revivalist, journalist and a member of the IRB. In February of 1916 he published the Fàinne, a publication to organise Gaelic speakers. He soon abandoned it and became involved in politics and would later fight in the Easter Rising.
