[Marxism] Class struggle, Ireland

Btw, I maintain a modest little blog about Irish politics, from a
socialist-republican (Marx and co; Connolly, Costello) viewpoint at:
http://theirishrevolution.wordpress.com/

On it, you'll find the chapters of my old (120,000 word) MA thesis, which
was on political movements in Ireland and the national struggle in the
first three decades of the 1900s, a lot of material written by Constance
Markievicz (which has subsequently gone up on the MIA, thanks!), some very
interesting interviews done by my friend Mick Healy with republican
veterans, stuff from groups such as the IRSP, RNU and eirigi. (I'm
sympathetic to all three and also to the 32CSM; however, it was eirigi that
I eventually chose to specifically hook up with and work with.)

2016 will be the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising, and a great time
for Marxmail readers to visit Ireland; there will be heaps on and there is
already a political struggle both within the establishment and between the
establishment and the folks who really do share the aspirations of the
women and men of Easter Week.
