William Pearse was Patrick Pearse’s younger brother. He was born in 1881 in Dublin. William assisted Patrick in running the school St. Enda’s. Along with Patrick, he also wanted an independent Ireland. The two brothers were very close and they fought beside each other in the G.P.O. during the Rising. William was executed on the 4th of May 1916. In 1966, Pearse railway station on Westland Row in Dublin was re-named in honour of the two brothers.
