Default 1916 was a load of ol toss, wasn't it?

A few shots at the post office in Dublin and all the media make a song and dance over it.

Dublins tourism is almost centered around it.

One of the most over rated and over exposed events in Irish history.

They burnt down the whole of Cork City and not so much as a radio documentary commissioned by rte.

Isn't it time we stopped paying credence to the significance of a fairly pedestrian event in the Pale?
