Bruton, 1916 and Contested History

Bruton, 1916 and Contested History

Contested History

In September 1914 the Irish Home Rule Bill became law. Former Taoiseach John Bruton argues that this was a significant event in the history of Irish nationalism which would have ultimately resulted in the non violent achievement of a sovereign state, and that the 1916 Rising and the conflicts which followed need never have happened. In this week's podcast Bruton discusses the issues and contemporary political implications with Hugh Linehan, Patrick Smyth and Harry McGee.
