Belfast was the first home of Republicanism in Ireland. Yet in 1916 during the Easter Rising, Belfast was quiet. Why? This book answers that question. It outlines conditions in Belfast from 1900 to 1916 and traces the growth of Republicanism and militant Unionism, the role of'constitutional nationalism' and the attitude and omnipresent influence of the British establishment in all this. In the Belfast of that time we meet Padraig Pearse, James Connolly, Sean Mac Diarmada, Alice Milligan, Bulmer Hobson, Edward Carson, Winston Churchill, Joe Devlin, Winifred Carney, Eoin Mac Neill, Nora Connolly and many others.
