Easter Rising in 1916Slide2

Germination of Rising

After 1902, even in peace time, the Ireland police were more military and the military more police-like than in Britain.


parties were called out to suppress industrial unrest (as Lockout 1913), to protect the property, and to assist police action against nationalist paramilitaries.

The Ulster Volunteers were a Unionist militia founded in 1912 to block domestic self-government (or Home Rule) for Ireland, which was then part of the United Kingdom.Founding of The Ulster Volunteers, aroused a feeling of insecurity of Nationalist and also served as the model for the nationalist. James Connolly formed Irish Citizen Army (200 members) early 1913 and Irish Volunteers were formed in Dublin in Nov 1913 ( 20,000 members in early 1914) as well. They are used to against the Ulster Volunteers once Home Rule had been applied.

Germination of Rising

Home Rule for Ireland dominated political debate between the two countries since Prime Minister William


Gladstone introduced the first Home Rule Bill in 1886, intended to grant a measure of self-government and national autonomy to Ireland, but which was rejected by the

House of Commons. The second Home Rule Bill, seven years later having passed the House of Commons, was vetoed by the House of Lords. Third Home Rule Bill, introduced in

1912, 1913 and 1914. Passed the Commons but rejected by Lords. Nevertheless, as required by the Parliament Act, the Bill automatically became the Law in 1914. It was formally

postponed for a minimum of twelve months with the outbreak of the First World War. The continuation of the war beyond 1915 and subsequent developments in Ireland led to further postponements, meaning that the Act never took effect;Slide4

Germination of Rising

No hope for the Bill took effect.

Desire for independence had mounted, outstripping the laborious passage of the Bill.

Influence of the radical Irish Republican Brotherhood permeated the whole Irish Volunteers structure. Radical leader Patrick

Pearse got part of the control of Irish Volunteers.Outbreak of WWI eagerly reared the believe that “England’s difficulties were Ireland’s opportunities.”German arms supportSlide5

The Rising : Plans?

Plans for Rising, not only in Dublin but in various parts of Ireland.

Carefully worded advertisements had ensured that 10,000


olunteers would be ready on Easter Sunday.Plunkett, the chief strategist of Irish Volunteers, made ambitious attempts to obtain German arms and sketched an absurd plan to hold the important buildings in Dublin. James Connolly was a strong advocate of “street fighting” as a way of maximizing the effect of small forces, and driving up the financial cost of repressive action and lingering hope that a really dramatic insurrection could trigger a mass response.Slide6

The Rising: Luckless prelude

Around 10,000 Irish Volunteers was mobilized on 19


Apr. and

manoeuvred around Dublin and other towns. MacNeill (Commander-in-chief of Irish Volunteers) heard the news that Cargo ship with German arms was intercepted by British Vessel and Roger Casement was arrested near Tralee, Co. Kerry. on 22nd Apr.MacNeill helped countermand the Easter Monday uprising, after learning about it and confronting Patrick Pearse, by placing a last minute news advertisement advising Volunteers not to take part. Patrick Pearse insisted to continue and only 1,300 radical Irish Volunteers (and 219 Irish Citizen Army) joined the Rising on Monday and the insurrection was confined in Dublin.Slide7

The Rising: Clash of arms

Easter Monday 24

End of Easter Rising in 1916

In order to prevent further slaughter of Dublin citizens, and in hope of saving the lives of our followers now surrounded and hopelessly outnumbered, the members of the Provisional Government present at Headquarters have agreed to an unconditional surrender and the Commandants of various districts in the city and county will order their commands to lay down arms

Total casualties over 3,00. 450 deaths (including 16 executions, 64 losses to the rebels and 132 to crown forces. Others were civilians), as well as 2600 injuries

1,000 rebels were surrendered and captured. Courts marital had been convened for them while arresting 2,500 more people and charging them with complicity in the rising. 1 woman and 120 men were tried by the courts martial: 90 were sentenced to death. Finally, 15 executions which took place between 3rd to 12th May. Roger Casement was hanged in


gaol on 3 Aug. 1867 men and women interned and gaoled in Britian and the rest were released after questioning between May and June. 600 others were released from internment on 23 Dec 1916. Hundreds were set free in previous months.During and immediately after the rising, Irish people were confused and dismayed by what had happened. Violent of rebels was condemned. However, horrible drawn-out executions changed the public mood gradually but palpably. It accelerated the process of Irish Revolution.Slide11
