Irish hotel named best in the world by Conde Nast Traveler
The kids in my class selected it as the best overall account- praise indeed!!! You really are to be congratulated. A very insightful and historical read.
Very well researched. Very well presented. Excellent record of our history. We have them all. The Cork nationalist Thomas Kent, who was one of the sixteen men executed in the wake of the Rising, likewise dabbled in poetry. Others preferred prose. Roger Casement earned a knighthood for his stirring reports on the evilness of the rubber barons in the Congo and the Amazon.
George Bernard Shaw viewed the Rising from afar but campaigned vociferously against the executions, particularly for Casement. Bulmer Hobson would later play an important role in founding the Gate Theatre. Music was also of pivotal importance to many.
Denis McCullough, president of the Irish Republican Brotherhood IRB at the time of the Rising, was a piano-tuner who specialised in the manufacture of musical instruments. Poets, actors, writers and musicians may seem an unlikely collection to lead a revolution, but their creative intellectualism echoed that of their spiritual forebears, the nationalists of the s, the Young Ireland rebels, the Fenians and the founding fathers of the IRB.
Indeed, Tom Clarke, who was old enough to have participated in the Fenian Dynamite Campaign of the early s, was an intimate acquaintance of many of those who participated in the Rising and who founded the IRB. It was not just thespians and wordsmiths who led the rebels. Many were experienced soldiers. Brennan-Whitmore were all veterans of the British Army. For others, soldiering was in the blood.

The renaissance of the Irish republican movement in the early twentieth century owed a good deal to the northern counties. Tom Clarke spent much of his childhood in the small town of Dungannon in Co. Leitrim was working as a tram conductor in Belfast when he first met Bulmer Hobson, a journalist from a Quaker family, with whom he began to reorganise the IRB, the main organ of Irish republicanism.
Together these immensely dynamic men not only restructured the IRB but also seized control of its Supreme Council. Their contribution to the Rising was considerably muted during the decades that followed, but has been successfully reclaimed in more recent times. The Irish Republic was conceived by dreamers and poets but harnessed by the methodical minds of the IRB. Turtle Bunbury Writer and Historian. Monaghan Chesterfield House, Blackrock, Co.

Gabriel Byrne said it was one of the best scripts he ever read, and described it at the time as Jim Sheridan's best work to date. Byrne was committed to the work, he said; Apart from it being a story about Travellers, and the relationship between a father and his two sons, it really was in a way about Ireland. The movie's most memorable scenes, such as the horse in the cinema and the beans exploding, were shot in the small town of Portarlington in County Laois.
The film has received a mostly positive critical reception. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times said the "kids will probably love this movie, but adults will get a lot more out of it".
