Manifesto to the Irish Volunteers after the Volunteer split.
The final issue of the Irish Review features another 'Manifesto to the Irish Volunteers' a document which illustrates the 1914 Volunteer split following Redmond’s exhortation to the Irish Volunteers to fight in the First World War. The foundational manifesto of the Irish Volunteers first appeared in the December 1913 issue of the Review after the Volunteers’ first meeting at the Rotunda on 25th November. The 1914 piece in the Review restates the initial priorities of the organisation and its unwillingness to compromise with Redmond’s decision. As a companion piece to this manifesto, the Review also published ‘Twenty Plain Facts for Irishmen’.
