The Great War
Easter 1916 was a turning point for Ireland and its situation between Home Rule and Irish soldiers serving on the fronts of Gallipoli and the Western Front. And even though the Easter Rising, the armed uprising against the British was unsuccessful, the spark for Irish nationalism ultimately led to the establishment of the Irish Republic.

quite well researched but you misspronounced some of the irish name for example is paw drig not pad drig

The Irishmen who went to fight in the war in 1914 were seen as heros. The same ones who then came back in 1917-18 (post rising and the wave of nationalism) were now seen as traitors and are often still seen as traitors today by nationalists.

majority of “British” fighting the Irish in the war of independence, 1916 and so on were mainly Irishmen they knew the land well so it was an easy choice

the rebels weren't in liberty Hall, only the janitor was in the building, yet it was the first to be destroyed by the helga.

Polarize the situation. That`s cold. TrRrTush!

Jesus, Gallipoli just was terrible all the way around.
I knew about the New Zealanders, the Aussie, the British and the Indian troops but I hadn't heard of the Irish there. And at that, they were the first Irishmen deployed and lost a 1/3 of their Battlion in the first bit of fighting.
The moment he said Gallipoli I was like "ohhh nooo.... I'm sure this wont help the tension between them"
Sebastian Clare
Have a question - possibly one that might fit your Out Of The Trenches series - prompted by your Weekly Update video 'Rebellion Week 199'.

I have an MA in 20th Century British-Irish Relations, and yet I was hitherto totally unaware of any 1918 Plot for insurrection in Ireland. Can you tell me more about this plan Sinn Fein (pronounced 'shin FAYNE', not 'FINE' Indy 😛 😉 )? I imagine that it was spearheaded by Cathal Brugha, but other than that I am clueless.

Better to die under Irish sky, than Suvla or Sud el Bar.

Our day will come!

My great grandad and his wife's brother both fought in the Somme. I don't know what regiment or any of that but I know that great grandmothers brother died there and my great grandad was shot through the ancle there and was sent back to Ireland where he was arrested for simply playing Galic football and died in 1966

The brits did more for ira than the ira themselves .
The Irish Revolution Channel
Not bad for a 10 minute video, it's a little difficult to fit it all in in 10 minutes of course!
rusko123
