1 April 2015

JOHN BRUTON thinks the 1916 Rising should never have happened and that John Redmond should be revered. If Redmond had acted differently in 1914, this might very well have been the outcome. He could have stuck to his original call for the Irish Volunteers to remain in Ireland in defence of their country.
