ii) Baineann an scéal seo le buachaillí óga a chónaigh faoin tuath na blianta ó shin - Pádraig,
Séamas agus Micilín. Bhídis i gconaí ag deánamh rudaí nár choir dóibh a dhéanamh agus
bhain siad an-taitneamh as an saol. Saol na tuaithe agus saol in aice na farraige a bhí ann.

Does anyone have a sample answer on a named leader in the struggle for Irish independence 1900-21?
James connolly- a leader in the struggle for irish independance
James connolly was born in edinburgh,Scotland, in 1868. His parents were poor irish immigrants.He was a self educated man.He believed socialism could bring equality and better conditions for poor working people
at age 28 connoly moved to Dublin where the working class slums were among the poorest in Europe. He published a newspaper called "The irish worker". In it he urged exploited workers to rise up together and force their employers to give them fair wages
Connoly founded the "irish socialist republican party". He hoped that a free irish republic would allow a socialist society to develop.Connoly founded the "irish citizen army" in 1913. It was founded to protect striking or protesting workers beacause they were attack by the police in Dublin during the 1913 lockout
James connoly was invited to the military council when they found out that he was planning a rebellion. He was on of the 7 leaders who signed "the proclamation of an Irish republic"
on Easter monday Connoly and Padraig Pearse too control of the rebels headquarters, the GPO. after 5 days of fighting the rebels surrendered and by that time central dublin lay in ruins
Connoly was condemned to death for his role in the rising and was executed on 12 may 1916
Micheal Collins was Born in West Cork in 1890. He emigrated to London in 1906. He became a member of the IRB in 1909 in London.Was one of the first members of branch of Irish Volunteers based in London 1914. Returned to Ireland - in GPO during Easter Rising - minor role. Sent to prison camp - Wales - emerges as a leader.Released from prison Dec. 1916 - begins to re-organise Volunteers
Elected as Sinn Fein TD in 1918 and was appointed Minister of Finance in first Dáil 1919. He also Raised a huge amount of money for Dáil loan - around £350,000. This paid for weapons and the running of the government. Was in favour of guerilla warfare in Anglo-Irish war of 1919-21. Set up a special unit called "the Squad" this was a group of assassins who killed british spies. Had a very effective spy-network operating in Dublin in key places. Most wanted man in Ireland - £10,000 price on his head. He was sent to London by De Valera to negotiate Anglo-Irish Treaty of 1921 and was reluctant to go at first but agreed to go after a lot of pressure. Signed the Treaty on December 6th 1921 - felt it was the best possible deal available. He defended his decision to sign the Treaty in Dáil debates in Jan. 1922. Saw Treaty as “a stepping stone” to the Republic. Became key member of new provisional government. Made great efforts to prevent outbreak of civil war in Ireland. Ordered the shelling of the Four Courts in June 1922 - start of civil war. Became Commander-in-chief of Free State Army.

Slán go fóill - Farewell for now
Bhí fonn orm i gcónaí dul go dtí an Frainc, go háirithe go dtí Páras, mar theastaigh uaim dul suas an Túr Eiffel agus tá suim mhór agam i stair na Fraince - I always wanted (or desired) to go to France, especially to Paris, because I wanted to go up the Eiffel Tower and I have great interest in French history.
Is minic a dhuisím i gceartlar na hoíche nuair a smaoiním siar ar an eachtra uafásach a tharla cúpla mí ó shin - I often wake up in the throws of the night when I think back on the terrible incident that happened a couple of months ago.
Fágadh curam an tí ormsa - the custody of the house was left with me.
Bhí ag éirí go geal liom - I was feeling great
D'ullmhaíomar bia blasta sa chistin - We prepared tasty food in the kitchen
Is ansin a fuair mé amach go raibh sé ghlan as a mheabhair ar meisce mar d'ól sé cúpla gloine uisce beatha - It was then I found out he was out of his mind drunk because he drank a couple of glasses of whiskey.
Geallaimse duit gur fhoghlaim mé ceacht fúinteach agus beidh mé níos curamaí as seo amach - I am telling you that I learned a valuable lesson and I will be more careful from now on.
Chun na fírinne a rá ní dhéanfaidh mé dearmad go deo ar an eachtra uafásach a tharla an oíche sin - To tell you the truth I will never forget that terrible night.
Oh and I was just wondering if (BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE TIME AND NOT BUSY) you have any plantation landowner people in history answers and if so could you put them up? It's not urgent or anything! Oh and thank you very much for those answers above!
