Fuck this. It was done to death three years ago. All hail the ruling families and the Church. That is 1916s legacy.
Pearse was obsessed with blood sacrifice.
Hardly a coincidence it was Easter.

Even if the rest of the country came out, it wouldn't have lasted long.

Yes, a TV doc a few years ago. It's called "the burning of cork" based on a book of the same name.

It totally changed my mind.

An amazing account of the close quarter house to house style fighting that took place.

It was like a mini stalingrad.

Amazing book.....highly recommend.
A very tiny, mini Stalingrad.....and less cold.

I'd not read that book CC. Just ordered it on your recommendation. Sounds interesting. Mount Street Bridge and the North King Street massacre etc
