They were not spat upon by there own people , they were spat upon by the wives of those receiving the queens shilling. If you look at their return after the rising they truly did receive a heroic welcome back. They awoke and revived a spirit which the british long thought they had destroyed .They did like f**k 'have a mandate'.
The vast majority of the country were against the rising, they were terrorists who were spat on by their own people ffs.
There was no popular rising.
As for been terrorists.. The biggest terrorists Ireland has are gits like you who hide behind a pseudo name and spout british propaganda, You ought to be (,but you are probably to ignorant to the facts) proud of your country and its history but instead gobs***** like you put it down at every opportunity .. If only i was dictator for a day .
