Irish National Volunteer Review in Limerick: Mr Redmond Emphasises Unity and Discipline

In a speech delivered yesterday in Limerick, Mr Redmond, a prominent figure in Irish politics, addressed the importance of unity and discipline within the Irish National Volunteer organization. Speaking at an event attended by Irish National Volunteer members and supporters, Mr John Redmond, MP.., underscored the necessity of maintaining cohesion within the National organization during the interim period leading up to the establishment of an Irish Parliament.

Mr Redmond highlighted recent attacks on the conventions used to select National Parliamentary candidates, emphasizing the need to prevent personal and local issues from impeding the progress of the National cause. He stressed the significance of upholding the principles of the National organization, particularly in light of ongoing discussions surrounding the formation of an Irish Parliament.

Referencing historical perspectives, Mr Redmond invoked the words of Parnell from 1875, who had expressed willingness to accept the duties and responsibilities associated with Home Rule. He recalled a resolution passed with enthusiasm at a convention following the introduction of a Home Rule Bill, depicting it as a positive step towards resolving longstanding disputes between Ireland and England.

With the passage of the Home Rule Bill into law, Mr Redmond noted the commitment of the Irish people to accept the treaty of peace. He warned against actions that could potentially undermine Ireland’s honour and reputation on the world stage, urging steadfastness in upholding principles of justice and morality.

Addressing concerns about the involvement of Irish volunteers in conflicts abroad, Mr Redmond reassured the audience that Ireland had 150,000 men of Irish birth ready to defend the nation’s interests. He expressed confidence in the loyalty and dedication of Irish volunteers, particularly in light of ongoing discussions surrounding the potential deployment of troops.

As discussions surrounding the Amending Bill continue, Mr Redmond highlighted the growing support for the Irish National Volunteer organization, with an increasing number of members enrolling in its ranks. He concluded his speech by reaffirming the importance of unity and discipline within the National organization, emphasising the need to remain steadfast in the pursuit of Ireland’s interests.

The speech by Mr Redmond underscores the ongoing significance of unity and discipline within the Irish National Volunteer organization, particularly as Ireland navigates through a period of political transition and uncertainty.
