Category: Rising in Dublin in 1916
- Does the use of violence help resolve the problems of a divided society?
- Were the Ulster Unionists right to threaten violence to resist Home Rule?
- And were the men and women of 1916 right to actually use violence to achieve their goal of a 32 county Republic?
The earlier deaths of those who occupied the General Post Office in 1916, seeking to achieve a 32 county Republic, made it harder for those, who occupied the Four courts in 1922, to accept anything less than a 32 County Republic.
100 YEARS ON……..AND WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?
In 2016, there will be extensive commemoration of the centenary of the Rising in Dublin in 1916.
