Happy Sunday everyone!
I just came across this brilliant article by Ciaran Tierney. It is in response to the Daily Telegraph journalist comparing the 1916 leaders to ISIS. Yes. You read that right. These ‘terrorists’ stabbed the British empire in the back by trying to take over a ‘British’ city (Dublin). No mention of all the horrible things Britain has done over the centuries, not just to Ireland but across the world. The 1916 leaders were ordinary men and women who chose to give their lives not for their freedom, but for ours. I was so angry reading that article but Ciaran has given a great response. Please read.
