Easter Rising

The Easter Rising was an insurrection staged in Ireland during Easter Week, 1916. The Rising was mounted by Irish Republicans with the aims of ending British rule in Ireland and establishing the Irish Republic at a time when the British Empire was heavily engaged in the First World War.

My Saturday Essay in the Irish Daily Mail (1800 words guys!) Who Fears 1916? On Monday morning, I tuned in to the Webcast of a Dublin City Council meeting. Questions were to be asked about the capital’s preparations for the 2016 Centenary of the Easter Rising. I was chilled to hear the Assistant Chief Executive tell Councillors that no special financial provision was being made by the Council to generate commemorative events, and that they hoped to get some money next year from a “National Commemorations Committee” -- which doesn’t actually exist as a funding body. Hoped! From a non-existent agency! Next year! Five years after the setting up of an Oireachtas committee to prepare for this momentous national occasion, key partners are still hoping in vain, and at the final hour! How Irish is that! I reached for a strong cup of tea and shuddered with despair. My mind flashed back to the last minute cobbling together of the 1991 Dublin European Capital of Culture programme, and to the hastily assemble ...

Today in Irish History: 22 June 1922 - Field-Marshal Sir Henry Wilson is assassinated in front of his home at Eton Place in London. Field-Marshal Sir Henry Wilson left his home in London to unveil a war memorial at Liverpool Street railway station. When he returned at 2:30 that afternoon two young men, Reginald Dunne and Joseph O'Sullivan, were waiting for him. Wilson was deputy chief of staff of the British Expeditionary Force on the Western Front at the outbreak of World War I and was appointed Imperial Chief of Staff in 1918, a position he held until he retired in 1922 to become MP for North Down. Wilson was shot dead in London in June 1922, by Joseph O’Sullivan who had lost a leg fighting with the British Army at Ypres and Reginald Dunne who also fought in the British Army. Neither Dunne nor O'Sullivan had been politically active before or during the war (Dunne, in fact, had joined the army after the Easter Rising), but they displayed the zeal of converts once they became committed to the cause of . ...
The Irish Republican Army (IRA) (Irish: Óglaigh na hÉireann[1]) was an Irish Republican revolutionary military organisation. It was descended from the Irish Volunteers, an organisation established on 25 November 1913 that staged the Easter Rising in April 1916.[2] In 1919, the Irish Republic that ha…
In an adapted extract from, The Story of the Easter Rising, John Dorney describes the bloody fighting at Mount Street Bridge during the Easter Rising. In many locations during the Easter Rising, particularly at Jacobs Factory, the Four Courts and Bolands Mill, the Volunteers barely saw a British soldier all week. Rather their positions were isolated and bombarded from distance. Where, however, the British assaulted Volunteer positions dominating the routes into the city, fighting was much more bloody. There they were drawn into street fighting, with its invisible snipers and sudden close range cross-fires, which negated their superiority in men and firepower. This happened mainly at three locations, Mount Street Bridge, South Dublin Union/Marrowbone lane and North King Street. At Mount Street, on the approach to the city centre from the port at Kingstown (now Dun Laoghaire), a Volunteer outpost manned by only 17 men, armed with rifles and hand guns, faced the frontal assault of a battalion of British troo ...

On this date in 1916, the final two executions related to the failed Easter Rising took place. Labor Leader and Commandant of the Citizens Army , James Connolly and IRB Member Sean MacDiarma were executed in Kilmainham Gaol.

98th Anniversary of James Connolly's execution, May 12, 1916 for his part in the Easter Rising, Dublin.
Today we remember James Connolly and Seán MacDiarmada. Executed for their roles in the Easter Rising of 1916
Undershirt worn by James Connolly in the GPO during the 1916 Easter Rising
The 12th of May marks some important anniversaries. It is 98 years since the executions of James Connolly and Seán MacDiarmada, 93 years since the killing of three IRA volunteers in Knockanure, Co. Kerry, and 33 years since Francis Hughes died on hunger strike. We remember the sacrifices of these brave martyrs today. Connolly and MacDiarmada both participated in the 1916 Easter Rising, being stationed in the GPO during Easter Week. They both had impeccable revolutionary credentials, with Connolly being prominent in the establishment of the Irish Citizen Army and a skilled political theorist, while MacDiarmada had long been long involved in various organisations such as the IRB, Sinn Féin and the Irish Volunteers. Both had been privy to the planning of the rising through their membership of the IRB Military Council. They were signatories of the historic Proclamation of the Irish Republic, and as prominent participants in the rising they were court-martialed and executed in the aftermath. They were execut ...
On this date in 1916, the British army executed Sean Mac Diarmada and James Connolly, the last of the Easter Rising leaders they would kill in Dublin. The treatment accorded to Connolly, a hero among the poor of Ireland for his dedication to the cause of labor, was particularly despicable. Crippled by an infected wound in the ankle, he was carried to Kilmainham Gaol, tied to a chair and shot. As they were loading their rifles, Connolly forgave the men of the army firing squad for their actions. A ragged volley of shots resounded from their rifles, so shaken were they by their distasteful task. Sir John Maxwell’s merciless and rapid application of military justice to the rebel leaders disgusted much of the Irish population. The British once again allowed iron-fist policies in Ireland to pour gasoline on the flames they had nearly extinguished. Also, on this date in 1999, U.S. First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton become the first woman to be granted the Freedom of Galway city, following in the footsteps of h ...

A chairde I share this image of Vol. Thomas Kent who was executed on this day, 1916, by the Crown Forces. After the Easter Rising, the Kent home was raided by British Crown forces on April 22, 1916, who were were met with resistance from Thomas and his brothers Richard, David and William. Mrs Kent, aged 84 at the time, reportedly called out: “We are soldiers of the Irish Republic and there is no surrender.” In the gunfight, an RIC officer was killed. David Kent was seriously wounded, Richard was shot while fleeing and died of his wounds, while Thomas and William were later tried for murder of the officer. William was acquitted, but Thomas was sentenced to death and executed by firing squad. David Kent got five years penal servitude. Apart from Roger Casement, Thomas Kent is the only person outside of Dublin to be executed for his role in the events of Easter Week. He is buried at Collins Barracks, Cork. In 1966 the railway station in Cork was renamed Kent Station in his honour. Fuair sé bás ar son s ...

On this day 98 years ago, 29th April 1916 marked the end of the Easter Rising. 500 people were killed during the fighting of Easter Week, 300 were civilians. The youngest was 2 years of age killed by the British. 2,500 people were wounded, 2,000 were civilians. 15 executions occurred after the Rising. And 1,841 rebels were jailed in England... Padraig Pearse made the following statement at his 'Court Martial'.. My sole object in surrendering unconditionally was to save the slaughter of the civil population and to save the lives of our followers who had been led into this thing by us. It is my hope that the British Government who has shown its strength will also be magnanimous and spare the lives and give an amnesty to my followers, as I am one of the persons chiefly responsible, have acted as C-in-C and President of the Provisional Government.

On this day in 1916, the Easter Rising began in Dublin, with the aim of ending British rule and creating the Irish Republic.
Today is Thursday, April 24, the 114th day of 2014. There are 251 days left in the year. April 24, 1916 some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Rising by seizing several key sites in Dublin. (The rising was put down by British forces almost a week later.) 1792 the national anthem of France, "La Marseillaise" (lah mahr-say-YEHZ'), was composed by Captain Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle. 1800 Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress. 1898 Spain declared war on the United States. (The United States responded in kind the next day.) 1913 the 792-foot Woolworth Building, at that time the tallest skyscraper in the world, officially opened in Manhattan as President Woodrow Wilson pressed a button at the White House to signal the lighting of the towering structure. 1915 what's regarded as the start of the Armenian genocide began as the Ottoman Empire rounded up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople. 1932 in the Free State of Prussia, the Nazi Party gained a pluralit ...

James Connolly Association – Oration at the Irish Martyrs Memorial, Waverley Cemetery, Sydney (Easter 2014) A chairde, As we approach the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising we gather at this monument, as many others like us gather at similar monuments in Ireland and elsewhere, and we reflect on the efforts and sacrifices of those who have gone before us. Because of the events of that week in April, ninety-eight years ago, Easter has become the most important date in the calendar of Irish Republicans, and Easter commemorations among the most important events. And while we cast our minds to that week, to the events preceding it, and to its aftermath, we do not overlook the many heroic efforts by gallant men and women who over the centuries have made the ultimate sacrifice in the same struggle for Irish national self determination. We stand here at the resting place of Michael Dwyer, 'The Wicklow Chief', of the United Irishmen of Tone and Emmet. These men inspired the men and women of 1916, and in turn th ...

Until 1916 it housed German prisoners of war in an abandoned distillery and crude huts, but in the wake of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, Ireland, the German prisoners were moved and it was used as a place of internment for approximately 1,800 Irish prisoners, among them such notables as Michael Collins and Arthur Griffith. the camp became known as ollscoil na réabhlóide , the "University of Revolution" or sometimes "Sinn Féin University".

George Gilmore George Gilmore was born in Portadown. He grew up in Dublin where he joined the Irish Volunteers in 1915. Gilmore partook in the Easter Rising of 1916, the War of Independence and the Civil War when he was Officer in Command of the South County Dublin Battalion of the IRA. Gilmore, like his brothers Charlie and Harry, was imprisoned many times during 1919-1923 and once escaped from Mountjoy Gaol with Joseph Campbell. On November 25th, 1925 Gilmore lead an IRA unit who effected the escape of 19 republican prisoners from Mountjoy Gaol. He was arrested a year later and sentenced to eighteen months in Mountjoy Gaol during which time he refused to wear prison clothes in demand of political status. It is believed that Gilmore travelled to Russia to seek military training for IRA officers in 1930. A year later he was arrested in Dublin and sentenced to five years imprisonment under the Treason and Firearms Act but was released in the General Amnesty of 1932. Shortly afterwards, in August, 1932, Gil ...

I've been thinking about 228 after my visit to Dublin, where memories of the Easter Rising of 1916 are so prevalent. Okay, 228 isn't quite the same as the Easter Rising. For one thing, the Easter Rising was a planned armed insurrection while 228 was completely spontaneous. But 228 and the Easter Rising are similar in that they were both uprisings that were brutally put down. Ireland, however, puts the emphasis on the rise of Irish identity, rather than the deaths that were suffered. I think we should do the same. Right now, 228 is usually referred to as the 228 Incident, which reduces the enormity of the event (the death of 20,000 people is much more than an "incident"). But calling it the 228 Massacre places the emphasis on defeat. Reframing it as the 228 Uprising would allow us to take pride in the formation of Taiwan identity instead of focusing so narrowly (and divisively) on the anger and pain of that very dark March of 1947. The 228 Uprising would be something to embrace, while the 228 Massacre is s ...

Commemoration in Conflict: Comparing the generation of solidarity at the 1916 Easter Rising Commemorations in Belfast Northern Ireland and the 1948 Nakba Commemorations in Ramallah, Palestine Brendan Browne Abstract This article takes as its focus the generation of solidarity through the commemoration of key and defining moments in modern Irish and Palestinian history, namely; the 1916 Easter Rising and the 1948 Palestinian Nakba. The paper explores the means by which annual commemorative rituals that take place in areas experiencing conflict, or a period of transition away from conflict, are constructed in such a way as to strengthen social cohesion between groups for whom the past is relevant. Reflecting on data gathered through semi-structured interviews with key respondents and ethnographic observations made over a three year period, (2010- 2013), the article reveals a more cohesive approach to commemoration in areas where the level of on-going conflict remains particularly high (Palestine) and more f ...

Global war is one of the defining features of twentieth-century experience, and the first global war is the subject of one of this period’s topics, “Representing the Great War.” Masses of dead bodies strewn upon the ground, plumes of poison gas drifting through the air, hundreds of miles of trenches infested with rats—these are but some of the indelible images that have come to be associated with World War I (1914-18). It was a war that unleashed death, loss, and suffering on an unprecedented scale. How did recruiting posters, paintings, memoirs, and memorials represent the war? Was it a heroic occasion, comparable to a sporting event, eliciting displays of manly valor and courage? Or was it an ignominious waste of human life, with little gain to show on either side of the conflict, deserving bitterly ironic treatment? What were the differences between how civilians and soldiers, men and women, painters and poets represented the war? How effective or inadequate were memorials, poems, or memoirs in ...

I remember I remember P& B Rowan Booksellers I have always loved second hand book shops. In fact I love them so much that I often dream about them, it’s disappointing to wake up just as I have got some unexpected treasure in my hands. But sometimes that happens in real life, I was once in Carlisle on my way back to Belfast from a conference in Leeds. I had about an hour and three quarters between trains, so I stepped out of the station and let my instincts guide me. Within ten minutes I had found a shop and in the basement there was a copy of the English translation of Sukhanov’s memoirs of the Russian Revolution, a book I had wanted for twenty five years. I have experienced on a number of occasions that moment when I recognised a book I deeply wanted and everything in the world melted, so that all I could see was the book. On my visits to Dublin I established a well worn trail between Connolly Station and Stephens’ Green, which allowed me the maximum browsing time in bookshops before my meeting sta ...

After the Easter Rising, Constance was put in solitary confinement. She was initially sentenced to death but this was commuted to a sentence of life in prison due to her being female. One year later, in 1917, she was released with fellow uprising prisoners after the British Government granted an amnesty.

A very good write up on Connectivity and Continuity in the Republican Movement, Republican legitimatism and the partitioned 26 County Free-State Gov and Occupied Six-Counties and how they have been been kept in tact due to sell-out parties who once opposed it. A concept within Irish Republicanism, Irish Republican legitimatism denies the legitimacy of the political entities of Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and posits that the pre-partition Irish Republic continues to exist. The concept informs aspects of, but is not synonymous with, abstentionism. The only political party currently to subscribe to this principle is Republican Sinn Féin which, running on an abstentionist platform, received 2,522 first preference votes, or 0.38 per cent of the valid poll in the 2007 Northern Ireland Assembly elections and 2,403 first preference votes, 0.13 per cent of the valid poll, in the 2004 Republic of Ireland local elections. The Continuity Irish Republican Army, Cumann na mBan and Fianna Éireann also sub ...

Letter to Joseph McGarrity, from Ella Young, Jan. 15, 1930. [Digital Library] Ella Young (1867-1956) The dedication of Ella Young’s 1929 collection of Fenian Cycle legends, The Tangle-Coated Horse and Other Tales, reads: To Joseph McGarrity Who has taken Fionn for Exemplar. It greatly pleased McGarrity to have won this recognition from such a respected poet, Celtic folklore scholar and steadfast Irish Republican. Educated at University College Dublin and a protégé of the writer, mystic and social reformer AE (George Russell), Ella Young was also deeply involved in republican politics having smuggled guns for the IRA and been active in the Easter Rising. Her political activities eventually earned her a spell in Mountjoy Gaol. In 1925 Young travelled to America where she lectured at a number of American universities before accepting a lectureship in Celtic mythology and literature at the University of California. Young decamped to Canada in 1930 in order to apply for a permanent American visa; her ...

THE STORY OF MESSINES It was on the Kemmel Road that men from the 16th Irish and 36th Ulster Divisions marched together on their way into the Battle of Mesen/Messines Ridge, on 7th June 1917. With the Home Rule Crisis and the Easter Rising still burning in the hearts and minds of the men they put aside their differences to fight for freedom. During the battle there was one particularly powerful story of brotherhood that illustrated that all these political woes could be put aside for the sake of saving a fellow man. HERO OF MESSINES RIDGE 1917 THE STORY OF PRIVATE JOHN MEEKE & MAJOR WILLIAM REDMOND - BROTHERS IN ARMS 23-year-old Private John Meeke was a stretcher-bearer with the 36th (Ulster) Division, 11th Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers (Donegal & Fermanagh). Before enlisting, he lived with his parents on the Montgomery estate, Benvarden, near Ballymoney, Co. Antrim. Major William Redmond was a Nationalist MP and an officer of the 6th Battalion Royal Irish Regiment (Derry National Volunteers) par ...

And now, ten Utterly Useless Historical Facts About... Eire (Ireland) 1. Irish independence might not be a reality today if not for a critical error on the part of the British administration in Ireland. The 1916 Easter Rising was only really popular in Dublin - most Irish aspirations for complete independence had been smashed by the defeat of the last Irish War for Independence in the 19th century, the failure of the Fenians in Canada, and British reforms that leveled the playing field -somewhat-. However, the British reaction to the Easter Rising, which included the brutal jailing and execution without trial of several of the ring leaders and was widely condemned from Washington to Berlin as being "far out of proportion" resulted in widespread anger amongst the Irish population, directly leading to the Irish revolt and the subsequent independence of Ireland from British rule. British behavior during the revolt, including the hiring of brutal "Black and Tan" mercenaries, helped seal the fate of an indepen ...
MAJOR WILLIAM REDMOND TURNS IN HIS GRAVE! The Irish media coverage, of the commemorative visit by Taoiseach Enda Kenny and PM David Cameron to Major William Redmond's grave at Locre Hospice earlier today, made reference to Major Redmond having requested to be buried away from the cemetery where the British soldiers were buried because of his revulsion of the 1916 Executions. WHEN WILL WE EVER TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR HISTORY OR SHALL WE FOREVER BE SLAVES TO THE AGENDA-LADEN NARRATIVE? (1) The Locre Hospice Cemetery was only developed after 7 June 1917 (after Redmond's burial). Ref: CWGC database. (2) The following extracts from the Redmond biography by Terence Denman suggest that Major Willie Redmond, Nationalist MP and Irish Volunteer held a contrary view to that of todays revisionist 'spin'! Two extracts from A Lonely Grave-The Life and Death of William Redmond by Terence Denman (1995). The following extract is from pages 96-97 of the chapter ‘With the Irish Brigade, 1916 – 17’ But the change of s ...

SIR MICHAEL TIPPETT "A Child of our Time" Composed 1939. AMG Description by Alexander Carpenter [-] A Child of our Time is an oratorio, scored for soloists, chorus, and orchestra. The history of its genesis is both fascinating and complex. As early as the years following World War I, Tippett had begun to plan out a musical work that would give voice to his empathy for the exploited and downtrodden. Further inspired by the terrible effects of unemployment in England in the 1930s, Tippett planned to write an opera on the theme of rejection. He considered the Easter Rising in 1916 in Dublin for his subject, but quickly abandoned the idea as too difficult to dramatize. By the mid-1930s, Tippett had decided to write an oratorio rather than an opera, but it was not until 1938 that he found the subject for his drama: the Nazi pogroms in Germany and Austria precipitated by the assassination of a German diplomat by a young Jew. The title of the oratorio was taken from German author Odon von Horvath's novel that r ...

“The new Irish beauty” Today we remember Countess Constance Markievicz (1868-1927) – A revolutionary and nationalist, Countess Constance Markievicz was the first women elected to Westminster and the first Irish and European Female Cabinet Minister. Constance Gore-Booth was born on the 4th February 1868 in London and was brought up at Lissadell House, County Sligo. At the age of 19 Constance came out to society, and was presented at court to Queen Victoria in her Jubilee Year of 1887. She was introduced as “the new Irish beauty”. She married Polish Count Casimir Dunin Markievicz in 1900. She entered politics in 1907 and in 1909 founded Na Fianna, an organization for boys, who were taught military drills and the use of arms. During the Easter Rising of 1916 she was second-in-command at St Stephen’s Green. Following the surrender she was arrested and although initially sentenced to death, this was commuted to life imprisonment. She was released in 1917. In the General Election of 1918 she was ele ...

Alliance Lagan Valley MLA Trevor Lunn MLA has commented on the 97th anniversary of the beginning of the battle of the Somme.     Trevor Lunn MLA said: “We should never forget the sacrifice of those who died at the Somme. We should be doing all that is possible to honour all those young men who lost their lives during this battle.     “I am pleased to see the on-going development of interest in the Irish Republic of these commemorations with the second attendance of an Irish Minister at the cenotaph memorial at Belfast City Hall. These are shared events and we should be taking every possible opportunity to remember those who died from both sides of the border.     “I also welcome the growing source of interest in young people in learning about these commemorations. Just recently, Friends’ School, Lisburn and St Dominic’s, Belfast completed a joint project on the events of 1916 covering both the Somme and Easter Rising, and they are hoping to expand it to other schools.     “It is import ...
These parties were led by many prominent statesmen including Lord Melbourne, Sir Robert Peel, Lord Derby, Lord Palmerston, William Ewart Gladstone, Benjamin Disraeli, and Lord Salisbury. The unsolved problems relating to Irish Home Rule played a great part in politics in the later Victorian era, particularly in view of Gladstone's determination to achieve a political settlement. Indeed, these issues would eventually lead to the Easter Rising of 1916 and the subsequent domino effect that would play a large part in the fall of the empire.
For eight months following the Easter Rising over 1,800 Irish rebels were imprisoned in Frongoch, a former whiskey distillery in North Wales. It soon became a University of Revolution and among its notable alumni were Michael Collins & Richard Mulcahy. By December 1916 all the Irish prisoners had be...
Two Poets, One War Cemetery, One Destiny... 1. Francis Ledwidge An Irish poet, killed in action during World War I. He was born on August 19, 1887 at Slane, County Meath, Ireland, into a large and poverty-stricken family.Within a week of the outbreak of WW1, he volunteered for active service in an Irish unit of the British army.In 1915 he saw action at Suvla Bay in Turkey. Having survived Gallipoli, he was dismayed by the news of the Easter Rising and was court-martialled and demoted for overstaying his home leave and being drunk in uniform.On July 31 1917, the first day of the Third Battle of Ypres, he was killed by a stray shell while out with a working party near Pilkem Ridge. The Battle of Pilckem Ridge, 31 July – 2 August 1917, was the opening attack of the main part of the Third Battle of Ypres. Some days before his death, Francis Ledwidge heard the singing of a robin. Looking around he spotted the little bird in a shattered tree near the trenches and described it in these lines: "This is a song a ...
Notes from Cork City Council meeting: Delighted that my motions below were passed at the Cork City Council meeting tonight, the first 2 unanimously, the one on Irish signage was passed despite stringent Fine Gael opposition while the motion on supporting the Repeal the Property Tax bill, a joint motion with Cllr Thomas Gould was also passed with 3 Labour Cllrs breaking ranks & supporting the motion, my colleague Cllr Chris O'Leary also had motions on natural resources which partly called for a State Oil, Gas and Mineral Exploration company & a motion calling for more powers for the Private Residencies Tenancies Board passed unanimously. That Cork City Council calls on the Government to do their utmost to locate the remains of the patriot Thomas Kent on the grounds of Cork Prison and work with the Kent family in re-interring any located remains in a more appropriate resting place, this should be done in time for centenary commemorations of the Easter Rising.

Letter Printed in this week's Andersonstown News Newspaper A chara, On behalf of the 1916 Societies I request your support for our campaign to hold an All Ireland Referendum on Irish Unity. The 1916 Societies are an independent Irish Separatist Movement that looks upon the ideals and principles set out in the 1916 Proclamation as our significant point of reference. The proposed Six County border poll under Britain’s Northern Ireland Act 1998 permits the Secretary of State (an English politician devoid of a single vote in Ireland) to determine: • when and if a poll may be called, • the wording of the poll and, • who qualifies to vote. Even if passed the British parliament retains the final say on whether or not the result will be endorsed by the UK government. We believe the core concept of Irish Republicanism is that Irish constitutional authority derives from the Irish people and does not defer to laws or decrees emanating from London. As we approach the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising it ...
