The Easter Rising was a key event leading to Irish self-government.


DeValera resisted both bribes and threats from Churchill during the war years, ('the emergency'), and it was not until the Costello led Government declared a Republic in 1949 that the effects of the Anglo-Irish Treaty were finally removed from the Southern part of Ireland. Partition remained.

DeValera was Taoiseach of Ireland for much of the fifties and on 25 June, 1959 he was inaugurated as President of Ireland, a position he held for 14 years. He retired in 1973 and died shortly afterwards, on 29th August 1975 at the age of 92.
