The Irish Volunteer - Volume 1 - Number 18

The Irish Volunteer - Óglach na hÉireann Volume 1 - Number 18 newspaper, first published 6th June 1914.

The Volunteers are becoming more militant in the wake of the Curragh Mutiny in March when British officers at the Curragh Camp said they would refuse to obey orders to go to Ulster if Home Rule was passed. “Come what will the Volunteers must win Ireland’s freedom by peaceful methods if they may, by war if they must; and, having won it, the movement must keep on and on, an Irish army for Irish rights. We were slaves indeed not to realise before the Curragh debacle that he who looks to others to protect him will often be in need”, declares the front page. Inside PH Pearse writes about ‘The Volunteers and the Language’. The phenomenal growth of the movement is shown in reports from no less than 90 areas.
