The Third Home Rule Bill. 100 Years On
The Home Rule crisis brought society to the brink of open and armed conflict. Only a conflict on a global scale could have eclipsed the animosity and the divisions that threatened to tear apart the fabric of British and Irish society in 1914. Now a century on from the introduction of the bill that ushered in this crisis society in Ireland and Britain must reflect on how we commemorate these events that led to the creation of two Ireland’s and simultaneously introduce violence of a character and a scale that eclipsed any other in the modern period.
In a podcast for the History Hub.ie podcast series Conor Mulvagh (UCD) looks at the Third Home Rule Bill which was introduced to the House of Commons on April 11th 1912.
