Before the Easter Rising (the anniversary of which is in 3 days time) there was no "revolution" in Ireland.  
Unquote.

No, if the Easter Rebellion had be a "Revolution", they'd have won, not been captured and imprisoned/executed. Not by the proper definition.


There was no  "technical" revolution in Ireland until their winning of their free state in 1921. But, rebellious/revolutionary activities went back 800 years. Technically it was all civil war until 1921.

The only difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter is the FF won. Imagine; George Washington losing? Being  named historically, a : "terrorist"? Shudders....

''Treason is, in the end, a matter of dates.''
