    Because people sometimes have minds of their own?

    No some didnt agree back then - even a majority but not all. But wait a while and you'll hear from a different breed here today and with different answers why the rising shouldn't have happened.

    They died for something they believed in; they wanted it more than life itself - is that a sacrifice?

    Them boys and gals must be spinning in their graves - shame on you greedy corrupt so called democratic representatives and intransigent lazy condescending civil servants (from judges to pothole fillers)- you have betrayed all that the 1916 rebels sacrificed their lives for.

    Citizens of Ireland - grow up, take responsibility and always think of your fellow citizen in everything you do.

    For the same reasons that most Irish people didn't at the time.
