In the midst of World War I, the Easter Rising took place in Dublin and throughout Ireland in April 1916. The revolutionary movement faced many problems from the beginning, including splintered leadership, disorganized support, opposition from moderate supporters of home rule, and prepared retaliation from the British.

The Easter Rising was very thin....like a small cloud it drifted over the land, it was casual and never cut to the chase. Boring I regret listening to it. If you want some names and information it may be helpful.
