Home Rule, the campaign for self-government for Ireland within the United Kingdom, was the dominant political movement of Irish nationalism from 1870 to the end of World War I. It dominated all local and national papers in Ireland. Men fiercely argued its pros and cons while Ulster protested that if Home Rule was introduced it ‘would fight, and Ulster would be right.’
THE ROLE of Women in 1916, and specifically the part played by Cumann na mBan in the run up to, and during, the Rising, will be the focus of a free conference taking place in the Ballinasloe Library this weekend.

With the exception of the ‘few months’ and other small children, all tell the story of their lives so far.
