Maith sibh a mhuintir Mhisnigh! Redmond was an arch imperialist responsible for the deaths of thousands of Irishmen in WW1. Many were killed trying to invade Turkey for Gods sake. I dont remember Ireland having any grievance with Turkey. That said I now say ‘ Up the Kurds’ .

We are a Republic, therefore we are celebrating a Republican revolution. Redmond was a loyalist who supported our coloniser. The people got rid of him at the next election (1918) in a very decisive manner.
