It highlights the failure of the authorities to move against the conspirators and attempts to understand why the Irish allowed Ireland to deteriorate for years before making a move. The chapter discusses the economic benefits of the war for Ireland and Eoin MacNeill's recognition of the possibility of an uprising as early as February 1916.
