‘The Irish Folly’: The Easter Rising: the Press; the People; the Politics.
Foley, Michael
This paper aims to examine the coverage of the 1916 Easter Rising and the impact of that coverage on the political aspirations of Irish people in the aftermath of the Rising. It is examined here as a media event within the context of modernity and as an event that aimed to amplify on an international stage through the press the aims of the insurgents and so redefine Irish nationalism.
