Connolly O'Brien writes of the public's opinion and judgement of O'Brien's talk "I believe you and I had the same end in view - you in your broadcast talk and I in my book [Portrait of a Rebel Father] - to bring James Connolly before the minds of people as a real person not as a historical or political name.".
