David Quinn in Comment, Irish Independent, March 18, states that the Easter Rising fails the "just war" criterion as well as a "just cause".

I disagree with him on both points and would like to refer him to an article in The Sunday Times on March 13 by Dr Ronan Fanning, Professor Emeritus of Modern History at UCD.

Quinn states that we should have continued on down the road followed by Redmond.
