Often regarded as the ‘transitional’ figure between the early and later soldier-poets, Sorley, like his poem, was unusual for the time. [2] Yet, the poem provides one of the earliest examples of what we now regard as the classic features of First World War poetry: the lyric testimony of the broken body – mouth, eyes, the ‘gashed’ head – set against the abstract rhetoric of honour; the address to the reader (‘you’) that we associate with the poetry of Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, as opposed to the egotistical ‘I’ of Rupert Brooke; the ‘pale battalions’ haunting the shell-shocked dreams of veterans, John Singer Sargent’s dream-like Gassed (1919) and Sigmund Freud’s Beyond the Pleasure Principle (1920), and becoming the iconic image of the war.

Alfie Byrne told Parliament that in one house the soldiers entered and found four men and some women.

The twentieth century has seen an extraordinary expansion of mobility, in a populace drenched if not drowning in the sheer quantity not only of its own numbers but also of material goods and information. It is usually considered to have ended with the Belfast "Good Friday" Agreement of 1998. [115] [116] [117] Following a period of widespread economic slowdown and industrial strife in the 1970s, the Conservative government of the 1980s under Margaret Thatcher initiated a radical policy of monetarism, deregulation, particularly of the financial sector (for example, Big Bang in 1986) and labour markets, the sale of state-owned companies ( privatisation ), and the withdrawal of subsidies to others. [118] This resulted in high unemployment and social unrest, but ultimately also economic growth, particularly in the services sector.

Edward Cotterill writes and directs this historical documentary telling the story of Anne Frank. Members of the RIC invariably worked in or near the district they lived in, the theory being that they would pick up on any information that could prove useful to the authorities in Dublin. Moving toward national self-determination, therefore, came with an analogous sectarian price: ‘In time, the cost of this [Easter 1916] was to be felt in north-east Ireland where the largest concentration of Protestants lived’ (p. 275).

The Chieftains are perhaps the best-known traditional Irish group among American listeners, having been around the longest, played the most places, and sold the most records. One of the major achievements of so called ‘revisionist’ historical writing in recent decades has been its articulation of diversities teasing out the subtleties of Irish identities. Some inscriptions in primitive Irish and Pictish have not been deciphered, there are also a number of bilingual inscriptions in Ogham and Latin, and Ogham and Old Norse written with the Runic alphabet.

Dramatists who write for film and TV (or the stage) may attempt to show the lexis and grammar of a dialect speaker, but their work is not authentic data in illustrating dialect in live use. (It may be instructive and worthy of study for other reasons.) And actors are not typical speakers - they are highly trained in the physical articulation of speech sounds, which they articulate with greater clarity (by exaggeration, distortion and amplification of speech as it might naturally occur).

Unsurprisingly, the Irish army warned of ‘disastrous consequences’ for an intervention force on the basis of limited manpower. Life goes on the even tenor of its way, unflurried and unruffled in its stable predictability. He remained sure of his conviction that a Home Rule agreement could solve the Irish question; in a response to MP Sir Edward Grey’s comment that: Despite such optimism, these comments reflect a rather naïve view of the Irish situation; it had become profoundly more complicated by 1914, and the rather apathetic attitude expressed by Grey illustrates how parliamentarians simply wanted the Home Rule issue out of the way.

A Bill of Rights Commission, chaired by Sir Leigh Lewis, met for 18 months to consider this matter and reported in December 2012 when it was utterly unable to reach any sort of consensus. The sort of changes mooted are no ceremonial dress for Commons staff, reform of terms such as "My right honourable friend", and a less gladiatorial version of Prime Minister's Questions.
