New York-born Eamon DeValera lead the Republic.


Padraig Pearse used Irish identity to fight the British.


Charles Stewart Parnell fillibustered for the Revolution.


Robert Emmet's short, dramatic life left a mythic mark.


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


The British Prime Minister, Lloyd George, eventually compromised and offered a partition of Ireland and a 'Free State'. Collins and Arthur Griffith had been sent to London as the Irish delegation because DeValera knew that the ultimate aim - independence - was not attainable.

The resultant civil war that broke out between the pro-treaty and anti-treaty factions was bloody indeed but Collins defeated his former comrades-in-arms only to eventually have his own life taken in an ambush in Cork in 1922.
