9781782051916: The 1916 Irish Rebellion

The 1916 Irish Rebellion is the companion book to a three-part documentary series to be broadcast worldwide in 2016. Narrated by Liam Neeson, the documentary, entitled "1916 The Irish Rebellion," and its related seventy-minute version are initiatives of the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame. The series will broadcast on RTE and American Public Television.The 1916 Irish Rebellion includes a historical narrative; a lavish spread of contemporary images and photographs; and a rich selection of sidebar quotations from contemporary documents, prisoners' statements, and other eyewitness accounts to capture the experiences of nationalists and unionists, Irish rebels and British soldiers, and Irish Americans during the turbulent events of Easter Week, 1916. In the first part of the book, Nic Dhiarmada surveys Ireland's place as part of the British Empire in the decades leading up to 1916, with special emphasis on earlier Irish movements to achieve independence or at least some measure of self-governance. She then outlines the events leading to the Easter Rebellion of 1916, including the crucial events of Thursday through Saturday prior to Easter.The second part details the events of the Easter Rising and the week of violent fighting, ending in the failure of the armed insurrection in Dublin. Her third part discusses the fate of the leaders of the Rising, many of whom were immediately court-martialled and executed. Nic Dhiarmada suggests that the Irish Rising, its ideals, and the subsequent election of members of the nationalist movement to prominent government offices were instrumental to the later creation of the sovereign Republic of Ireland, as well as an inspiration to anti-colonialist insurrections elsewhere in the world.

About the Author:

Briona Nic Dhiarmada is the Thomas J. & Kathleen M. O'Donnell Professor of Irish Studies and concurrent professor of Film, Television, and Theatre at the University of Notre Dame. Professor Nic Dhiarmada is originator, writer, and producer of the multipart documentary series on the Easter Rising of 1916.

Review:

"Crisply written, evocative, and, on occasion, poignant, this fine study by Briona Nic Dhiarmada of Easter Week, 1916, in Ireland and beyond, is wonderfully complemented by a wide range of contemporary materials-poems, speeches, letters, and images-all of which add greatly to the immediacy of her prose and the impact of her narrative. Not to be missed." -Thomas Bartlett, professor emeritus of Irish history, University of Aberdeen; "Stylish, pacy, and lucid, this narrative places the Rising in its national and international contexts. In vivid photographs and keynote quotations, it illustrates just how and why revolutionary Ireland became a test case of modernity in a rapidly decolonizing world." -Declan Kiberd, Donald and Marilyn Keough Professor of Irish Studies and Professor of English and Irish Language and Literature, University of Notre Dame; "The 1916 Irish Rebellion presents this pivotal historical event, with its global significance, to a broad audience in a highly accessible manner that is both serious and informative but also highly visual and evocative in its use of photographs and personal testimony. The 1916 Irish Rising was not only an event with historical and current ramifications, it is also a story of real men and women, people of flesh and blood who participated in or witnessed epoch-making events, with many leaving firsthand accounts of their experiences. These personal accounts are presented separately from the central narrative, allowing us to hear these voices from the past directly... These very human stories are not always given their due place in the telling of that history, but they are listened to here. They are at the heart of the 1916 Rising and at the heart of this book."-Mary McAleese, President of Ireland, 1997-2001, from the foreword
