Quotes from the Rising

John Dillon "You are letting loose a river of blood...It is the first rebellion that ever took place in Ireland where you had the majority on your side. It is the fruit of our life work...and now you are washing out our whole life work in a sea of blood."

Speech by deputy leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party, John Dillon, to the House of Commons, 11 May, 1916
