Published Easter Sunday on the Centenary of the Easter Rising
The Easter Rising also known as the Easter Rebellion, was an armed insurrection in Ireland during Easter Week, 1916. The Rising was launched by Irish republicans to end British rule in Ireland and establish an independent Irish Republic while the United Kingdom was heavily engaged in World War I.
The rebellion was put down rather quickly by the battle ready British troops. In the aftermath over 3000 men and almost 80 women were arrested. Most were soon released but 90 were tried and sentenced to death. Between 3 and 12 may 1916 15 were excited including all 7 who signed the Republic Proclamation. The the swift excitations of the of the leaders sparked more armed and political upheaval leading to the Anglo-Irish treaty with England to form the Irish Free Sate December 6 1921 Although still a Dominion of the British Empire.
The irish Civil War was yet to come between factions of the pro treaty and total a break from England. Today Ireland is an Island of 32 Counties. 26 are in The Republic of Ireland 6 are in Northern Ireland which remains a Provence of The United Kingdom.
