    Non-attendance at Protestant church services was punishable by recusant fines and the public practice of unapproved faiths by arrest. The rushed executions, mass arrests and martial law which remained in effect through the fall offueled public resentment toward the British and were among the factors that helped build support for the rebels and the movement for Irish independence. The Uprising was put down brutally, with hundreds of Irish patriots hunted down, tortured, and executed. Moreover, in the wake of the Elizabethan conquest, the native population became defined by their shared religion, Roman Catholicismin distinction to the new Church of England and Church of Scotland of settlers, and the officially Protestant Church of Ireland English administration in Ireland.

    The hierarchy was naturally concerned that a republican rebellion led mostly by protestant nationalistswould, if successful, be governed as yet another " Sister republic " of France. And it seethes with fury over the convoluted mess that is the relationship between Eire and her oppressor. Oh no! However, as a result of the failure of Dublin to rise, the Rebellion when it came was distinguished everywhere by a lack of concert and by a lack of focus.

    And unlike O'Connell, who could draw many thousands to his "monster meetings," the Dublin-based organization had little support across Ireland. The fighting in Kildare, Carlow, Wicklow and Meath had been largely suppressed by government forces, and the capital secured, when news arrived of a major rebel success in County Wexford. More than 3, people suspected of supporting the uprising, directly or indirectly, were arrested, and some 1, were sent to England and imprisoned there without trial. Alec, the son of Anglo-Irish parents grows up lonely and friendless on his parents' estate in Wicklow during the early years of the 20th century. Meanwhile, in Ulster, the breakdown of state authority prompted widespread attacks by the native Irish population on the English Protestant settlers.
