Found on the Headstone of Hubert P. Macklin 1904:

LAMBH LADHER ULTAGH ABOO

Let the men die and the women live on in oppression

LA RAID MARA NA GAHRAN

Also has a hand holding a bloody dagger.

Translation and background information required. Is it a Fenian plea?
This September will be the Centenary of his death.

Regards,

"The strong arm of Ulster forever"

I can't really get the second piece. "There was never a day......" I'm not sure.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh anam Hubert.
