de valera is spot on . Connolly was a very proud irishman and member of the gaelic league . He disagreed with many socialists on many issues . for example , he was totally opposed to bringing sexual matters into the realm of socialism . in his writings he frequently refers to "the irish race" which displays his fondness for nationhood and country . the new left wing teach people to hate country and nationhood . Connolly was not like that . Read his writings and you'll see .
