    "Dr. Mary McAuliffe tells us about the truly remarkable life of Kathleen Lynn, a women who dedicated her life to the people of Dublin. A truly inspirational woman, who deserves to be celebrated as a national hero."

    Thanks. It's Dr.Kathleen Lynn. I believe this to be the triplets here.

    Just listened to the youtube: very interesting indeed.

    One question, that perhaps the person in the youtube would like to answer - did the participants in the Rising call it a revolution ?

    Myself, I see it as a national liberation uprising, rather than a social revolution, in which one class displaces another as the dominant class.

    I see it as all the above. It was a revolution, in the sense that many went out with both national liberation, and economic emancipation, in mind, and what followed was a counter-revolution in years that preceded it thereafter by the Free State. It was Connolly who had showed how anything other than complete economic and national independence was futile, if they did not come together, how we cannot separate one from the other. I think the great thinkers like Pearse would also have hugely contributed to the great social effort had things turned out differently.
