It staged the Fenian Rising of 1867 and masterminded the 1916 Easter Rising. The IRB was formed on St Patrick’s Day, 17 March in 1858 by the former Young Irelander, James Stephens, with the support of Irish exiles and sympathisers in the United States who provided much of the early funding. These seven men planned and carried out the 1916 Easter Rising and proclaimed Ireland to be an independent republic. All were later executed when they were forced to surrender after six days of fighting. The legacy of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. The IRB survived the Easter Rising and continued under the leadership of Michael Collins. The executions of the leaders outraged public opinion, which had been hostile to the Rising at first. It led to a wave of nationalist feeling which manifested itself in the overwhelming success of the pro-independence party Sinn Fein in the 1918 General Election.
The second version of the album was reissued under the same name in 1998 for the 200th anniversary celebrations of the Irish Rebellion of 1798.

The Fenian movement, founded in 1858, was a popular movement based on nationalist and egalitarian principles. It could count on the support of tens of thousands of men, though not all of them had arms. A contingent of Fenians captured the police barracks at Dundrum, Stepaside and Glencullen, but the man chiefly responsible for stopping the rising was Sub-Inspector Dominic Burke. He was charged with protecting Tallaght barracks, which lay in the path of the Fenians assembling on the Tallaght Hills. Burke took 14 armed constables and formed them up across the road at a perpendicular angle to the barracks.

Shooting clubs were established using smaller. 22 rifles and target rifles but these do not prepare you for a revolution. The antique Howth rifle was the main rifle of the Rising but there was also an assortment of other weapons. In fighting a rebellion this was a problem as John P Dungan explains in his book A History of the Irish Army, 'without standard weaponry, collective training and concentration of force it was unlikely that guerrilla warfare, no matter how skilfully waged, could achieve military victory in the field'. Originally, the members of Royal Irish Constabulary were recruited from men of Irish birth and stationed in small barracks around the country.
