抄録: After the 1880s, the Irish Nationalist Party demanded Irish Home Rule. In 1914, the Third Home Rule Bill was passed in the House of Commons. It then only awaited Royal Assent, but soon after the outbreak of the Great War, the British government decided to postpone the enactment of Irish Home Rule. Willie Redmond, MP, the brother of John Redmond, enlisted for the Irish Division in the British Expeditionary Forces and was killed in the Battle of Messines in 1917. Willie’s death caused a vacancy in the East Clare constituency and the Sinn Fein candidate, Eamon de Valera, won the seat. This was a significant turning point in Irish Nationalism from Home Rule to Republicanism. This article will examine Willie Redmond’s motives and discuss the cause of Irish Home Rule in the context of the Great War. To distinguish from John Redmond, MP, Willie’s elder brother, and William Archer Redmond, MP, Willie’s nephew, the author will use the popular name of Willie for William Redmond in this article.
