The Easter Rising Of 1916: An Annotated Bibliography

1746 words - 7 pages

Best Primary Source #1
My best primary resources was the document “Poblacht Na H Eireann”. This document is the declaration that was read from the Dublin General Post Office at the beginning of the Easter Rising. The leaders of the rebellion all signed the document, and copies of it were hung around Dublin and surrounding areas, bringing attention to the revolution. The document declared war on Britain and declared the independence of the Irish from the British, and included a list of basic human rights that the IRB was fighting to defend.
I used this document to demonstrate how the IRB felt about their cause. It shows that they felt very strongly about the rising, and were determined to free Ireland and regain the rights of the Irish people. The declaration proclaimed the IRB’s intention to forcefully and violently reclaim Ireland and to continue fighting until Ireland established its own governing body, separate from the British. In addition to stating the IRB’s intention, the document also invokes the blessing of God and calls on all Irish people to participate in the revolution.
This document is useful for anyone doing research on the Easter Rising. This is the central document of the Easter Rising, the one that started it. The declaration gives reasoning for a rebellion and was used as a call to arms for the IRB. Being the central document in the Easter Rising, this document should most definitely be used as a source for research on the Easter Rising.
Best Primary Source #2
My second best primary source is the Official Report by General Sir John Maxwell on the Easter Rising. This document is, as the name suggests, the official report made by General Maxwell on the Easter Rising. General Maxwell was in charge of the British army at the end of the Easter Rising, and accepted the surrender from the IRB. The document specifically details how the British suppressed the Irish and the chances of an additional rebellion following the Easter Rising.
I used this document to demonstrate the type of warfare used by the Irish and how they dealt significant blows to the British army before being forced to surrender. The report gave examples of the chaos and destruction surrounding the rising, and discussed the guerilla warfare and mixing of militants with civilians used by the IRB. The dispatch also gives the mortalities on the British side and the attempts made by the British at diplomacy during the fighting.
This document is indispensable for research on the Easter Rising. The document gives definitive descriptions of the fighting and tactics used by both sides. Despite the accuracy in the report, it contains bias towards the British military . It is specifically stressed that all destruction and loss of life was a direct result of the rebel’s actions, and all blame rests solely on them. Despite the opinion and bias, the document still factually describes the rising and is very helpful for understanding the situation in Dublin...

Michael Joseph O’rahilly And The 1916 Easter Rising In Ireland

1762 words - 7 pages The role of Michael Joseph O’Rahilly (also known as “The O’Rahilly”) in the Easter Rising of 1916, is not much talked about, and this, in my opinion, makes it all the more fascinating. Many would feel, that he has, in a sense, been ‘written out of history’. O’Rahilly was a man who believed that the Irish people could not achieve independence of the British without confrontation in an armed struggle. It was for this reason that he joined played
