  • On This Day

    • In 1916 : Easter Rising: The Irish Republican Brotherhood led by nationalists Patrick Pearse, James Connolly, and Joseph Plunkett starts a rebellion in Ireland.

  • Black and Tans

    • Come, let us hear you tell
      How you slandered great Parnell,
      When you thought him well and truly persecuted,
      Where are the sneers and jeers
      That you bravely let us hear,
      When our heroes of sixteen were executed.

      Oh, come out you Black and Tans;
      Come out and fight me like a man;
      Show your wife how you won medals down in Flanders;
      Tell her how the I.R.A. made you run like hell away
      From the green and lovely lanes in Killeshandra.

      Come, tell us how you slew
      Them ol' Arabs two by two;
      Like the Zulus, they had spears and bows and arrows;
      How you bravely faced each one,
      With your sixteen pounder gun,
      And you frightened them poor natives to their marrow.
