The Big House From Rebellion to Truce, 1916 – 21
“Unfortunately for them it was also a harbinger of more difficult times ahead.”
The 1916 Rising proved to be yet another watershed in the history of the Big House in Ireland. At a time when thousands of family members were involved in the war effort either at home or at the Front, the Rising was perceived by the former landed class as an act of madness and treachery. Unfortunately for them it was also a harbinger of more difficult times ahead.”
