Unionist responses to the 1916 Easter Rising
The Shame of Easter Week’? Unionist Responses to the 1916 Easter Rising
In April 1916 an Irish republican insurrection exploded onto the streets of Dublin; the events which followed ensured that the Easter Rising became a pivotal moment in Irish history. This illustrated talk by historian Jason Burke will explore unionist reaction and responses to the Rising, as well as the broader impact on unionism which lasted far beyond 1916.
