Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Easter Rising of 1916 is THE seminal event in Irish nationalism and one of the key turning points in Irish History. No event captures the imagination as this does. It is a story populated by idealists, poets, union activists and soldiers. It has generated the most heated debate of nearly any other topic in Irish history.
Though they were hated at the end of the Easter Week, within a few short months, the Irish people came to see the participants in the rising as patriots and heroes. In this short history, John Dorney tackles the complex happenings of the event itself and, by putting the conflict in context, offers a lucid explanation of the passions and motives that drove Irishmen into arms against Britain when their fellow Irishmen fought on the fields of Flanders in British uniforms.
This app will guide you through this turbulent period to understand the politics, events and personalities of the turning-point in Irish history.
