Moving from the War to the 1916 Rising, it is shown how the leadership of the IPP ignored warnings of its coming and especially how they reacted to it in the aftermath. In this, the emerging divergence between Redmond and Dillon comes centre stage. The shift in Irish nationalist sympathies towards support for the inheritors of the 1916 legacy – Sinn Féin – is examined and it is shown how the IPP struggle to maintain relevance thereafter. Finally, it considers the deteriorating situation in the leadership, Anglo-Irish relations, the stagnation of constitutional initiatives towards the solution of the Irish and Ulster questions, the death of John Redmond and its implications. It concludes with a detailed analysis of the ultimate defeat of the IPP in the 1918 general election.
