How far would you agree that the main reason for the growth of Sinn Fein was the Easter Rising?

Connection between Rising and SF To be accurate……..NONE SF in 1916 was monarchist, non-violent and under Griffith’s leadership quite distinct from IRB and IVF. Could not identify with the rebels’ republican aims

To be accurate……..NONE

SF in 1916 was monarchist, non-violent and under Griffith’s leadership quite distinct from IRB and IVF.

Could not identify with the rebels’ republican aims

Yet popular misconception that SF were involved “SF Rising”, a term inaccurately used by both British press and government SF benefited from the arrest and imprisonment of Griffith and other SF leaders. Martyrs…to an extent!

In immediate aftermath of rising SF well positioned to make political capital. IPP too compromised by association with govt and so SF by default became the focus for all those appalled at the British response to the rising. This connection deliberately emphasised by SF, eg Count Plunkett standing in first by-election after rising

Other reasons for growth of SF It wasn’t the compromised IPP It had preserved its reputation by not being involved in the Convention Conscription crisis and party’s response Broad platform allowed nationalists of various hues to support it British “manufacturing Sinn Feiners” through arrests, martial law

It wasn’t the compromised IPP

It had preserved its reputation by not being involved in the Convention

Conscription crisis and party’s response

Broad platform allowed nationalists of various hues to support it

British “manufacturing Sinn Feiners” through arrests, martial law

Conclusion SF acknowledged its debt to men of 1916 by deliberately identifying with them in propaganda No doubt that this was major reason in its initial wave of support By 1918 its anti-conscription stance and the discrediting of the IPP were possibly as significant in its electoral appeal
