“Remember it’s the centenary of the Easter Rising,” she noted.
“Starting on Easter Monday that year,” she stated, “Over the course of six days, the Irish Volunteers, the Irish Citizen Army, and Cumann na mBan, spent six days fighting to establish the Irish Republic.”
“This is a lot more interesting and a lot less stressful than a parade,” he replied. “Let’s do it again every year.”
