9781331125365: Recollections of the Irish War (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Recollections of the Irish War

Even in Ireland, folk in thinking of the war that ended in the establishment by International Treaty of the Free State go back no further than the Easier Rising of 1916. Little wonder that this way of thought should prevail outside Ireland. Life, however, does not work in this fashion. History, which is the record of Life, reveals a far-reaching series of connected causes and effects, difficult to disconnect into the trim order that the unimaginative mind requires. To follow any part of that record, from whatever personal standpoint it be seen, with understanding and interest, it is necessary, therefore, briefly to note the framework into which it is set.

The Easter Rising of 1916 reaches back through two personalities to older events. Noble minds planned that Rising as an heroic gesture of sacrifice. Other minds, not less noble, held aloof because they saw no justification for it on military or political grounds. But of them all two (one on each side) connected that event, and the causes that immediately produced it, with earlier history. These two therefore are specially significant.

The first of them is Arthur Griffith. He held aloof; but he took the Rising back to the fall of Parnell.
