My world view on subjects that interest me.
Hi Mel - history is an interesting and informative topic ... I know little of this time in Ireland's history - Military Law was barbaric, but a sign of those times ... so much has changed in our thinking now. Today we have War still - devastating ones ... and ones that have moved the goalposts of our understanding ... With peace and hope - Hilary
Thank you Hilary.It would be good wouldn't it if no more lives were wasted on battlefields and if politicians were able to formulate long lasting peaceful solutions ?
Very sobering reading through the list of names of those who died, but not forgotten. There are two men on there with the surname of Darcy, not a common name but the next village to me is called Tolleshunt Darcy. I am now off to do some research xxx
I felt that both the List and the Proclamation were quite sufficient on their own , without me adding anything extra Fran. Quite a number of the leaders of the Rising were born or had their origins in the UK. For instance Patrick Pearce's father was from Birmingham and brought his skills as a monumental mason with him to Ireland.It will be interesting to learn the results of your research Fran, so good luck with that.
