        The Kent Family was about it really.
        Is that the lad who the Train Station in Cork is named after
        Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
        Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
        The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
        The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
        The best lack all conviction, while the worst
        Are full of passionate intensity.

          In 1916, the Cork lads followed orders, whats so unusual about that?

          Lets see, in 1916 the Dublin lads fought a static battle against a larger enemy
          equipped with lots of supplies and artillery on call. What a surprise, they lost.

          In 1921, the Cork lads fought a guerrilla war with hit and run tactics.

          At de end a da day like, all credit too de Cork lads.

            "The Dublin lads"???? They weren't the only ones fighting in Dublin.
            A body of volunteers moved to the city from Maynooth to assist in the
            Rising effort - as detailed in the book "On The One Road" by James Durney
            "Well, stone me! We've had cocaine, bribery and Arsenal scoring two goals at home. But just when you thought there were truly no surprises left in football, Vinnie Jones turns out to be an international player!" (Jimmy Greaves)!"

              .... and that's an "F" in your Geography exam. There's a good 10-15 miles to the county
              boundary from Maynooth.

              Wouldn't like to be marching from Maynooth to the GPO, that's for sure, it's a long
              feckin' walk

              Methinks you need to get off your pond lily, the sun's starting to play up your
              brain cells....

                Was gandering through the pics in the St Patrick's Day parade folder, and I was
                staring at one, because I knew there was something wrong

                - but it took me a couple of minutes to twig it......

                  Several people with hands on butts (of rifles) ?

                  The right hand should be holding the butt of the rifle on the short arm dressing. As per the manual.

                    Was there not an ammendment to that?
                    "The Question is not: how far you will take this? The Question is do you possess the constitution to go as far as is needed?"

                        I could explain to you how victory was never an option in Dublin, but this isn't the thread for it.

                            If we didn't have the blow ins from other brigades we would be fine.....


                            Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

                                Listen, Dublin was the place to be on Easter 1916, simple as that! You just keep dreaming of being as good as the Eastern Brigade. :wink:
