The death of political pluralism? Ireland after the Rising, 1916-18
10am-5pm, Saturday 9th September 2017
W.B. Yeats famously remarked that Ireland after the Easter Rising was ‘changed utterly’. But how was it changed, by whom, and at whose expense? This one day seminar will explore the changes in Irish political life after the Easter Rising to explore how violent insurrection in Easter 1916 was transformed into a landslide political victory less than three years late, and what this meant for some of those who lost out. This seminar will explore how Ireland was changed for ever in the years between the Easter Rising and the outbreak of the War of Independence.
