Amongst those present at the meeting were Pâ€¡draig Pearse , Thomas Clarke , Sean McDermott , Arthur Griffith , Douglas Hyde (3 later to become the first President of Ireland ) , and the famous Irish playwright Seâ€¡n O'Casey . The first President of the band was Thomas Clarke . The first Secretary of the band was Seâ€¡n O'Casey . Casey acted in many plays staged by the St. Laurence O'Toole Dramatic Society to raise money for the band . Michael Colgan (3 later a Senator ) was the first Pipe Major .
