*Just to add, Waters mentions Dublin folks initial opposition to the 1916 Rising, but he fails to grasp what is quite understandable the fact that the centre of the city had been destroyed with business’s ruined and local lives lost, the majority of Irish men of the Irish Volunteers were abroad fighting in the trenches for the British Army (as we were a part of the UK at the time) but in the hope of gaining Home Rule for Ireland!

*Also, the rest of the country, including rural ireland, didn’t rise up in support when the news of the uprising in Dublin broke.

*Pearse’s father was an Englsh man, Eamon Ceannt gaelicized his very English name ‘Edward Kent’.
