In 1916 the Easter Rising Failed.
Men were hanged.
Casemate came home to face the music and he was hanged. Ah, those Black Diaries.
He was in Jarmany tryin' to arrange for the u-boats to deliver a load of weapons to support the Patriots. The Jarmins, the u-boat, the weapons, never arrived.
Same thing happened in the Year of the French. 1798, I think it was.
I dunna know how stupid the Irish are, but if they can't, once every hunnert years, stand up and die, they're stupider than the good Lord himself can save.
Mind you, I'm not talking about knee capping and the religious stuff.
