Description
The Irish Volunteers (Irish: Óglaigh na hÉireann) was a military organisation established in 1913 by Irish nationalists. It was ostensibly formed in response to the formation of the Ulster Volunteers in 1912, and its declared primary aim was "to secure and maintain the rights and liberties common to the whole people of Ireland". The Volunteers included members of the Gaelic League, Ancient Order of Hibernians and Sinn Féin, and, secretly, the IRB. At the start of World War I, over 90% joined the National Volunteers and enlisted in the 10th and 16th (Irish) Divisions of the British Army,[citation needed] leaving the Irish Volunteers with a rump estimated at 10–14,000 members.[3] Volunteers fought for Irish independence in 1916's Easter Rising, and were joined by the Irish Citizen Army, Cumann na mBan and Fianna Éireann to form the Irish Republican Army Large Bronze Figure.
