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.

1916 proclamation needs to be realised not rewritten - Francie Mackey's letter published in todays Irish News With the Centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising fast approaching the 32 County Sovereignty Movement welcomes all genuine efforts to both mark and progress the core message of that seminal event. We are also mindful that there will be those who will seek to bury and distort that core message because it does not dovetail into present political positions. The recent promotional video released by the Dublin Government ranks at the extreme end of the revisionist spectrum. Rightly castigated by their own historical adviser on the project the video nonetheless gave us an insight as to how the political establishment in the Twenty Six Counties State plans to mark the occasion. More recently it has emerged that a group comprising of relatives of those who participated in 1916, along with artists and academics, has been formed with the stated aim of ‘Reclaiming the Vision of 1916’. At a recent press confer ...

The Rising will complete the trilogy of great films on Irish history, and it will be seen as the prequel to Neil Jordan’s movie “Michael Collins” starring Liam Neeson, and Ken Loach’s “The Wind That Shakes the Barley” starring Cillian Murphy. The movie's official launch in 2016 will coincide with the Easter Rising's centenary celebrations. Known to the British as Sean MacDermott, this remarkable young man was a farmer's son who grew up to challenge the world's largest empire. He worked tirelessly to form a successful revolutionary movement in Ireland, acting as the mastermind for a team of driven visionaries who changed the course of history. The last of the leaders to be executed in 1916, Seán was considered a hero by Michael Collins. Featuring a range of Irish screen stars, The Rising is based on a true story, and will look at the revolutionary movement which led to the Easter Rising. The movie will be made in 2015 and released to a global audience in 2016, and is being timed to coincide wi ...
A NOTE FROM PRODUCER KEVIN MCCANN: On this day, November 22, I wish to pay tribute to the late John F. Kennedy and remember his passing. I am currently staying in Brookline, Boston, his birthplace and neighbourhood. This week, I had the pleasure of hearing his Grand-nephew Congressman Joe Kennedy speaking at the American-Ireland Fund Gala. Let us remember some of the words that JFK spoke: "" A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.”" "" The hottest places in *** are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality."" (Dante) And when asked what was the highlight of his trip to Ireland in 1963, the last year of his life, this great Irish American hero replied: "“The highlight? That was the Memorial Service at Arbour Hill"" (The burial place of 14 of the executed leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising.) John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917 - 1963) May his spirit continue to inspire us.

The Misneach hunger strike, 1966. December 19, 2012 by dfallon In April 1966, the Irish state marked the fiftieth anniversary of the Easter Rising in spectacular fashion. The state laid claim to the legacy of the Easter Rising, while Republicans fought for a voice within the year of commemoration. One unusual group who protested during the commemorations were Misneach, an Irish language activist group, who voiced their anger at the “non-achievement of the aims of the signatories of the Proclamation” by going on hunger strike for a week, frequently picketing the front of the General Post Office. Their strike began, as the Easter Rising itself had, on Easter Monday. They attracted considerable media attention worldwide, with the New York Times and others covering the protest. In March 1966, the group Misneach used a press conference in the Clarence Hotel to outline their planned hunger strike, and noted that during Easter Week they would picket the G.P.O, the newly constructed Garden of Remembrance, Lib ...

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.

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 ...

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
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 ...

5/8/1899 -- Bygonne era?: Irish Literary Theatre is inaugurated in Dublin with W. B. Yeats's The Countess Cathleen . . . with cops present to protect the players. Billy "Bud" Yeats was in love, hopelessly in love with Maud Gonne, for most of his life. Maud married Major John McBride in 1901, their son was Sean McBride, co-founder of AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL, & winner of the Nobel Peace prize. John McBride was executed by the British for his involvement in the Easter Rising, 1916.

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. I am prepared to take the consequences of my act, but I should like my followers to receive an amnesty. I went down on my knees as a child and told God that I would ...
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 ...

For those either too young to remember or who believe the hype of Sinn Fein or The Labour Party . The Labour Party is nothing but the break away part of Sinn Fein & those involved in the break away have just as much a dubious past . Don't be fooled by Sinn Fein hype. Mary Lou May be middle class , but Gerry ( I was never in the IRA) is still the leader after 29 years Year Event 1905 Sinn Féin Convention in November. 1907 Merged with Cumann na nGaedheal and the Dungannon Clubs. 1917 Reorganised after the Easter Rising 1922 Pro-Treaty members left Sinn Féin to form Cumann na nGaedheal. 1926 After a vote confirmed the Sinn Féin policy of abstention from Dáil Éireann, Éamon de Valera and his supporters leave to form Fianna Fáil. 1933 Cumann na nGaedheal merges with the National Centre Party and the National Guard to form Fine Gael. 1969 Defenders of abstentionism left the IRA to form the Provisional Army Council; the group which remained became known as the 'Official' IRA. 1970 The split in the IRA wa ...
On St. Patrick's Day I will remember James Connelly, Constance Markievicz, those who fought in the 1916 Easter Rising, those who fought British imperialism and genocide (Irish famine) and Bernadette Devlin, the only person, save Guy Fawkes, to enter Parliament with honest intentions!
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 ...

Top 10 biggest Irish Republican victories over the crown forces. 1. The 1916 Easter Rising - Like the TET Offensive in Vietnam it failed military but politically it was a huge success When the Irish people rose at Easter 1916 seizing the GPO in O'connell St. & proclaiming the Irish Republic they stroke one of the most deadliest blows to the British Empire. For Britain's Empire this was the beginning of the end. 2. Warrenpoint Ambush 1979 - 18 Brits were blown to bits down by the Narrow Water. Not only was this the single biggest lose of life for the British military since the 1956 invasion of Egypt 23 years ago it was their biggest loss of life during the war in the North. 3. Kilimichael Ambush 1920 - Tom Barry & his West Cork flying column inflicted the first major(and at the time the only) defeat to the terrorist Auxies killing 17 of them. Not only was it a military success but it was a huge political success as well which shook the British government to it's knees & made the whole world sit up & pay .. ...

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 ...
