Example text

The Easter Rising lasted until Saturday 29 April when Pearse and the republican soldiers surrendered to the British forces. 65 In May General Sir John Maxwell and his courts martial had the republican leaders shot; Casement would be hanged in August. This upset the population but also shocked Prime Minister Herbert Asquith who informed French that he was ‘a little surprised and perturbed by the drastic action of shooting so many of the rebel leaders’. 66 Again, French’s remark makes perfect sense if he had been informed by Hall or simply if he saw the execution of republican leaders as a perfect way to rid Ireland of disloyal elements.

With each passing year, post-Rising Ireland reveals itself and we who are of this strong independent and high-achieving Ireland would do well to ponder the extent to which today’s freedoms, values, ambitions and success rest on that perilous and militarily-doomed undertaking of nine decades ago, and on the words of that Proclamation. Clearly its fundamental idea was freedom, or in the words of the Proclamation ‘the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland’ but it was also a very radical assertion of the kind of republic a liberated Ireland should become.

These men were arrested on 21 February, the night the Germans were supposed to come. Among them were Terence MacSwiney, Dr Patrick McCartan, Darrel Figgis, Seán T. J. O’Kelly. 83 Indeed, the British approach to the Easter Rising and to Aufgabe P is essentially the same. The saga had a last, somehow amusing, twist. On 21 March, in the House of Commons in London, the independent nationalist parliamentarian Laurence Ginnell asked the home secretary under what conditions the arrested Irishmen were detained.
