Subject: RE: Anyone watching My Son Jack?

"Sinn Fein failed utterly to gain any democratic support for home rule, from 1905 until after the Easter rising" ?

Will you also accept that there was no popular support for that rising at the time, while hundreds of thousands of young Irish men had volunteered to fight for Britain?
