Following the Easter Rising in April 1916, the British General Maxwell ordered the imprisonment of 3,509 Irishmen and Irishwomen who had “taken an active part in the movement although not in the present rebellion”.
Imagine that these Irishmen and Irishwomen had not been imprisoned in 1916 but instead, had been imprisoned on the orders of Maxwell in April 1953 for taking “an active part” in opposing British rule in 1916.
This timescale is equivalent to the imprisonment today of Gerry McGeough allegedly taking “an active part” in opposing British rule in 1975.
