* Following the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_Rising failed Easter Rising of 1916]], the signatories of the Irish Declaration of Independence - being treated as enemy agents due to the ongoing [[WorldWarOne Great War]] - were sentenced to death via firing squad. This action, quite ironically, [[DoomedMoralVictor ended up hurting the British government more than the Fenian movement]]; the executions were [[EveryoneHasStandards roundly criticised]] as a [[DisproportionateRetribution disproportionately brutal]] and uncalled-for affair, with one ringleader - the mortally wounded, bed-ridden and ''already'' near-death James Connolly - infamously being tied to a chair before being shot in the Kilmainham Prison courtyard. Even in times of war and political turbulence, it did a lot to popularise the Irish cause, escalating the rebellion and, ultimately, evening the road to Irish independence a mere five years later.
