    1912; The Great War

    United Provinces of Ireland Population:6,821,358 Year: 1920 (later months) Rain pelted the roof of the armored car and Michael Collins along with a small bunch of 24 men were driving back to camp. They had been ambushed by a large force of unionist terrorists. Luckily a majority of Collins men made it out alive. They had managed to utterly annihilate the enemy. On the way back to camp it started to rain hard. And through the constant rhythmic patterning of rain against the vehicles Collins zoned out. Remembering back to 1916, so many men were lost. And they were crushed. All hope seemed lost but here they were. He could still remember the faces of men under his command dying in front of him, asking him to help them. While he maintained a calm and collected face in front of his men, after witnessing such violence and loss it still got to him and caused him many sleepless nights. Collins was jolted out of his trans brought on by the rain to one of his men offered him a bottle of Whiskey to calm his nerves, After accepting it and downing many gulps of the burning brown liquid he handed it back, thanked the soldier looked around at his men. Some were battered, many covered in blood. It was hard to tell if it was their own or the enemies. He then inspected himself, giving a once-over, he reassured himself he hadn’t been hit. But looked down at his hands to see them covered in blood. This brought him back into his head. He recalled the events of the battle. Remembering one of the men who got shot three times in the chest and against in the knee. And how he held the boy’s wounds trying to stop the bleeding, but ultimately the lad died, there were a few others like him but then he recalled the Unionist who charged him with a club,he had to quickly step to the rear of the man’s charge and as the man stopped and turned to face him Collins threw a right hook to the man's throat. This then caused the soldier to fully spin around to face him, now with one hand clutching his throat he fell to his knees. Collins took this opportunity and bashed his rifle butt quickly into the man's stomach. To this the soldier’s grip on the club loosened and Collins snatched it from him and took out the knife the man had sheathed on his right side. The soldier lunged for Collins rifle and Collins took use of the club in his other hand and with a loud WACK The soldier fell onto his back. Collins threw down both weapons enraged and started battering the soldier repeatedly. Until he was shook out of his rage by a fellow soldier telling him the enemy was starting to charge. As he looked down at the enemy soldier, his fists were covered in not only pools of his men’s own blood but now there were layers of new blood. The mans face was beaten very badly and as he tried to speak all that came out were gurgles from the blood he had been swallowing clogging his throat.Collins took the club and clubbed the soldiers head 4 times with hard, fluid swings. The man was dead. By now the Unionists charge had commenced and as they approached they no longer held guns. But instead Melee weapons. Apparently they had already ran out of ammo. But as they charged Collin’s Brigade had already fired multiple volleys of shots into the enemy but they kept coming. Eventually they had to reload and during that time the unionist charge got too close and a brawl started. Fists, knives, clubs, pipes, bats, crowbars, swords, and brass knuckles were used. Collins men were in the midst of this chaos when another soldier charged Collins and caused them to stumble. Then the map started swinging a metal club at Collins who dodged the first few swings with ease but took a side swipe to the face, causing him to double backwards. The soldier swung again but it was way off. Before Collins could realize why he walked backwards off a hill and tumbled down into a valley hitting the ground with a loud Thud. As he lay there disoriented from the fall the smell of grass and dirt filled his nose, he tasted blood. And his ears were ringing, and the fall had knocked the wind out of him. It was the kind of fall that leaves you feeling like your heart flew up into your throat. As he continued to lay there gasping for air and digging his hand into the dirt and squeezing it he suddenly felt that his eye hurt. The force of the pipe hitting his face caused some blood vessels in his eye to burst and his eye filled with blood. Just then he saw that the enemy soldier was coming down the hill to finish him off. As the man approached Collins was still trying to get up and with the help of a sudden burst of adrenaline he stood up and grabbed a rock beside him. As the soldier charged Collins with the pipe he threw the rock as hard as he could at the mans face. It collided with his nose and forehead, causing the man to lose balance and fall over. Michael stumbled over to him, picked up the bloodied rock and as the man stood up again smashed him in the head with the rock over and over and over again. In the moment after he killed that man he tried to remember how many times he had smashed the rock into the man's head but lost count after 20. As he climbed back up the hill and reached the top he saw the brawl still happening, most of the weapons had fallen aside and now it was just people punching each other repeatedly. Collins said “I’m ******* sick of this ****.” and stumbled to a nearby vehicle, pulled out a gun with a drum magazine, aimed it in the direction of the large mass of men, aimed slightly upwards as to not hit his comrades and pulled the trigger. He fired all 50 rounds into the unionists. Killing them all before walking up to his men, numbering 24 men, 6 had died. Collins himself killed 15 unionists. There had been about 45 of them. His men were ordered to take the guns and magazines left on the field,and the 6 dead Irish and load them into the vehicles and leave. As Michael finished remembering this he felt the alcohol start to kick in he snapped out of his dazed state. Then he Sat back against the frame of the interior of the Armored car and thought about Kitty, Oh how he wished he could be back in Dublin with her. Going for strolls down to Phoenix Park, or taking her to the Cinemas to watch a picture. This small skirmish and many others had been taking place all throughout the rural landscape of Northern Ireland for many months now. And there wasn’t any sign it would be letting up. Though Collins would refuse to fight in those small brawls in rural areas. And soon they wouldn’t have to fight hiding from the eye of the northern government. The time of small rural skirmishes was over. Something much bigger was brewing for Collins and every soldier on both sides. Internal business The Kingstown city council votes to change the name of the city to its original name of Dún Laoghaire. The High King of Ireland starts an engineering organization with the goal of developing new technology/ improving current technology to better the lives of the Irish, and of the world. He gathers a team of well educated men and even a woman. They start by asking Portugal for 4-5 radios and instruction on how they work. The King would use his own money for this project. The company would also be a platform for which inventors could come unveil and develop their inventions using the companies resources, and advertise the inventions once ready and receive a cut of the profits. ______________________________________________________ Internal Reform Industrial growth is heavily funded Gaelic revival policies continues. Reforms are put into place to make local textile manufacturing, as well as in Dublin more profitable. Until the act of union with Britain in 1800 Dublin was a major textile manufacturer. But after the act was passed the mass produced British textiles made using steam power put Irish Industries out of business. Not only this but in many of the counties in Ireland farmers and the poor would produce cloth goods in their homes to earn that little bit extra to keep them going, but after the act of union that saw the end of that. With these new reforms any textile products coming into Ireland are heavily taxed to promote Irish textile manufacturing, as well as funding is given out to fund start up manufactures. ____________________________________________ Military Policy The additional 15k asked for is trained and await their next orders. A message has been sent to France asking for their support in the event of a civil war in which Britain joins in opposing Ireland. All 90k Troops in the Army, and all men in the navy are to constantly train and drill in between when they’re in the field tracking down extremists. The Military also begins stockpiling explosives that get donated from mines mainly from the west of Ireland. It also starts production on Artillery pieces that the french allow production of. But not only those things, but everything from rifles to ammunition, to spare parts, to scopes, flags and armbands with the flag on it are stockpiled and organized. ________________________________________________________________ Actions the IRB plots an assassination attempt on James Craig and other up and coming unionists.

    United Provinces of Ireland Population:6,466,043 Year: 1920 (Early Months) Chaos. The dream for a united Ireland is falling apart. With the outbreak of violence in the north against Gaelic revival teachers and other civilians the government got together and asked the northern counties to intervene and stop the violence but they simply rejected the proposal, any proposal that was drafted and made it clear that any army intervention would cause a war.

    A Manifest Destiny 2036 - RP Thread

    Ireland Population: 5,487,773 Government: Parliamentary Democracy Trade Partners: Greece, Italy, China, UK, Canada, USA, North Korea, Pan-Pacific States, Latin American Confederacy Provinces: 9 Introduction The Year is 2036. In the last 15 years Ireland has gone through immense changes. With the collapse of the EU Ireland’s economy was in tatters. Many thought only a miracle could fix it. On top of that the chaos and instability caused a major political shift in Ireland. Before 2021, Ireland and the west had seen a major progressive liberal shift in society. But after 2021 that was completely reversed. As the saying goes “Hard times Breed hard men.” Ireland in those 15 years had seen major polarization. While its economy has improved it is still not where it was prior. Ireland has much work to do to fix the country. On top of that the North of Ireland has seen a significant increase in Catholics, the trend started in 2017, since then Catholicism has been on the rise. Meanwhile Protestants have seen a massive decline resulting in a catholic majority for the first time in modern Irish history. And with the collapse of the EU Northern Ireland has felt increasingly abandoned and isolated from the UK. In the 15 years since then that feeling has only increased and the country of Ireland is calling for another referendum on the status of the northern 6 counties of Ireland. It’s time for a united Ireland. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Justin Barrett, leader of the National Party, An Páirtí Náisiúnta. Is Taoiseach of Ireland and has been for the last 15 years. From the start there was chaos, and looting, militias forming from different political factions. But Barrett kept it all under control using the Irish Army. Specifically a political party known has ICP formed, and tried to take control of Ireland. ICP, or Irish Communist Party is a very radical group of communists, progressives, and others in the left who were very dissatisfied with the collapse of the EU and the rise of the right into power. They spent 6 years gaining members before staging a revolution. Which was swiftly crushed. All of the leaders were killed. And any attempt to rise again is met with swift arrests of the ringleaders. After this period Ireland saw a return to its core catholic social values, there was a rise in nationalism and now Gaelic is widespread in Irish society. In 2011 the population who spoke it regularly was just 2%, in 25 years that has gone up to 25% and the Gaeltacht areas have actually expanded slightly. Even in Northern Ireland more people are speaking Gaelic. The economy of Ireland greatly suffered when the EU collapsed, but it has made much effort to regain its footing. The currency of Ireland is the Irish Pound, the currency it had already used before the Euro. Irish Army is greatly expanded, the Irish Ranger wing of the army gets many new recruits as well. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Initial investments 100AP into a launch pad 25AP into agriculture 25AP into research lab 6 AP Missile Cruiser 8AP 2 Destroyer 6AP 2 Frigates 8AP 2 Subs 5AP 25,000 Infantry 2AP 100 Artillery 1AP 250 Howitzers 2AP 500 APCS 1AP 100 tanks 8AP 195 Fighters 2AP 50 Bombers 1AP 100 Helicopters

    United Provinces of Ireland Population:5,807,752 Introduction: Eoin Macneill kneels in the grass outside the school he learned at as a child. He looks around, noting how it still looked exactly the same. And still had many broken wood panels and the window at the center on the left side of the main door still had the crack from when he was a child where his friend had thrown a small rock to piss off the teacher. After a moment he was jolted from reminiscing in his head to a bunch of kids running out to greet him. “Hello your majesty! It's an honor to meet you!” one kid said louder than the others with an outstretched hand, Eoin shook it and paused. “Wow... If only mum was here to see me now. She’d love this.” he said to himself before saying to the lad, and all the rest around him “Thank you, I’ve got many stories I’ll share with you lot today. But shall we head in doors?.” And they all headed in. Before entering Eoin took one last look behind him. As the wind rustled the branches of the trees around him and the rain started up on that cold winter afternoon. Eoin was very happy to be where he was, It had been his life's work to learn about Ireland's history, culture, and language and bring it into the modern world and into a free ireland and now all of those things were coming true and on top of that he got to tell stories of medieval ireland, which was his passion with the newest generation who he hoped would take an interest in Ireland's history as well. On top of that he was now “royalty”. The only downside was that as per the treaty and agreement between himself and George V one of Eoin’s Daughters would marry into the British Royal Family. ______________________________________________________ Internal Reform Industrial growth is continued at good pace and back on track, considerable funds and investments continue to go into Industrializing. Gaelic revival policies continue full speed ahead. Next year is the start of teaching most classes in Irish rather than English in 26 of the counties. It is being reported that in some counties Gaelic is already becoming widely spoken and already taught as a first language, Kerry, Cork, Limerick,Mayo, Silgo, Leitrim, Donegal. These counties are where Gaelic is thriving on its own, but with the increased funding for their schools it is sure to grow Exponentially. Growth is also being seen in all other counties in Ireland, even in the north. Though the growth there is much smaller. But the population of Irish people in the North seem to be learning it? Only time will tell. With the agreement with the Northern counties that they will not totally block learning or speaking Gaelic comes excitement for the future of “The People's” language, as the government is calling it. This is the linguistic map the Government has set as the Model they are hoping for. Dark Green is Gaeltacht areas, where only Gaelic is spoken. This exception would be Dublin. Where English will always be spoken. Light green is none Gaeltacht areas where Gaelic is still widely used daily, and the tree leaf green is areas where the Gaeltacht is growing into. Yellow is mixed areas specifically in the north and light blue is Ulster Scot speakers, Finally dark blue is areas where only majority of the population speaks only English. This is a very ambitious plan but the government will remain fully committed to making this map a reality, Whether it takes 10 years, 20 or thirty, or 50. Combined efforts across the country stop much of the sectarian violence. For now. ____________________________________________ Military Policy Recruiters for the military scour Ireland looking for 30k recruits. Pretty much every leading general and training instructor within the army is an IRB member or would support them in a civil war. Higher Ups within military command meet in secret with their IRB member friends in which the military assures the IRB that the Military and many within the government would support crushing the ulster extremists. Eoin O’ Duffy and Michael collins are also leaders of the IRB themselves and let it be known that the government in Dublin is not Docile. It is trying to maintain peace while at the same time arming itself in preparation for a ulster uprising,And that it would work with Far right, or far left Irish extremists during the event of a civil war so that together they could beat back the unionists. The government and military are just waiting for an uprising to occur so that they do not look like an aggressor as to avoid British agitation. Further secret meetings are held between the military and government with the IRB and other Irish nationalist groups in order to quell any doubts that they were on the opposite side. Once the military had 80k active personnel trained and ready in case violence erupts once again. Multiple large shipments of German weaponry arrive in Ireland after a secret deal was agreed upon over two years ago and which Germany secretly stockpiled for that time. ________________________________________________________________ Actions The Government of Ireland Asks the British government if it could have the Body of Roger Casement (who had been executed in England in 1916 for his involvement in the 1916 Easter Rising, the Only Irishman to be brought to England and executed) back to give him a proper burial where he belongs. [MOD] for Mod post flavor. Industrial growth is continued at good pace and back on track, considerable funds and investments continue to go into Industrializing. Can I get a progress report on Irish Industrial advancement? [mod] Ship building in Northern Ireland is booming. Continued growth is encouraged. The Irish Army sets a goal of 30k men it will attempt to recruit into the army by the end of the year, which would add up to then 80k soldiers in the army.[mod] Gaelic Revival policies are enforced in 26 of the counties and progress is already being shown. In the northern counties while they will not fund it the southern counties give donations and other funds to support Irish Catholics in the north wanting to learn Irish. There is even some growth up there in the existing Gaelic communities. [mod] The Department of Public health’s 6 existing clinics become heavily used but the Dutch flu puts much strain on them and so they begin to be useless for that. This information is noted and it is clear for the future that while the clinics are useful for basic stuff they are not as advanced as currently needed. But Ireland is still advancing up to modern standard and funds are still left for the department. [mod] Ireland continues to receive foreign investments. Especially from Britain who is massively funding Industrial growth among other things, But the Irish government asks Britain for funds to start several public works programs for building actual roads throughout the country as most of Ireland is still rural and disconnected from each other. [mod] The violence and terrorism from the IRB and extremist unionists seems to be over for the moment. The government reigns in on recruiting and hopes to have forces ready in case something larger blows up. [mod]

    Application The holding you wish to play: Duchy of Solitude Leader name and background: Hrodunn Wulfharth Hrodnunn’s great great grandmother was Elsif the Fair, who ruled after the great war with her husband until his death when she took over as Jarl of Solitude. Hrodnunn is now duke after the death of his father Ulfgundr. He has ambitions to expand his Duchy and bring it to greatness and to leave a lasting impression in history, as well as make sure he goes to Sovngarde to drink and fight with all his ancestors and friends. Hrodunn Wulfharth was raised first and foremost to be a warrior,his first 24 years of life were spent learning to fight, through guilds and shadowing Solitude's generals and going through training, he also spent a lot of time living life as a normal soldier would, sleeping on the ground, cold, lots of time eating crap food. and only has moderate experience in Diplomacy and ruling. He would rather hire someone else who is experienced to do most of the politicking while he fought alongside the men, he had good charisma with average people and his soldiers. He was a skilled tactician and remarkable warrior raised from birth to fit those rolls, able to inspire courage in his men even in the darkest of times. His father never expected that he would die as suddenly as he did so his son never got all training in ruling. He had spent the last 2 and a half years before his fathers death shadowing him, learning the basics of running the duchy, Hrodunn certainly wasn’t incompetent. But he wasn’t as experienced as his father. Skype Name: calvin.heitman3
