The Sinn Féin rebellion?

Citizens in ConflictCitizens in Conflict #1. The Rising was immediately dubbed the ‘Sinn Féin Rebellion’ and the participants almost universally described as ‘Sinn Féiners.’ In recent years many have suggested that this title is misleading, because neither Sinn Féin the political party, nor its leader, Arthur Griffith, played a role in the Rising. Indeed some even suggest that Griffith was opposed to violence and that Sinn Féin was not a revolutionary organization. In fact Sinn Féin and its members played leading roles in 1916.
