'Irish Rebellion, May 1916'

Postcard photograph, World War One (1914-1918), 1916.

A British officer searches a hay cart for rebels or ammunition. In the aftermath of the Easter Rising (1916) Republicans were hunted down and arrested across Ireland. Over 1,400 people were interned. Many of these people had little do with the rising and anger at their imprisonment increased support for Sinn Féin.
