The dissidents take their inspiration from the past. In particular, they look to the 1916 rebellion as a model for how they need to assert Irish independence and rid Ireland of Britain’s presence forever. They also, however, are looking to the future. In four years, the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Rising will be upon us. In four years, the dissidents have time to prove whether they really are here to stay.

Keywords: 1916; Easter rising; longevity; terrorist group; dissident strategy
