Home Rule of greater significance than 1916 blood lust

In 2016, there will be extensive commemoration of the centenary of the 1916 Rising.
No comparable commemoration is planned for an earlier centenary, that of 18 September 2014, the 100th anniversary of the passage into law of Home Rule for Ireland.
The events of Easter 1916 inaugurated an armed struggle, with many casualties, which continued until 1923.
