…..voted against the IPP. IPP’s record of support for the war, going back to Woodenbridge Irrelevant that they condemned conscription..had already been identified in the popular mind with the war. Due to Redmond had been too closely identified with the British govt. Actions such as execution of rebel leaders in 1916 damaged reputation of IPP

Redmond had been too closely identified with compromise and failure eg Lloyd George talks 1916 and Convention 1917-18 Frustration at delay in implementing Home Rule and the knowledge that there would almost certainly be partition

Vote for SF or republic? SF an umbrella organisation Central policy on gaining first a republic and then let the people decide the future status of Ireland was a fudge Consequently a vote for SF was not necessarily a vote for a republic. The deputy leader of SF was not a republican

Consequently a vote for SF was not necessarily a vote for a republic. The deputy leader of SF was not a republican

Conclusion Most definitely a vote against IPP, British, and conscription A vote for SF and the legacy of the 1916 rising Impossible to describe it as a vote for a republic since even SF itself was unclear on this issue
