Redmond, John Edward

 

Born Sept. 1, 1856, in Bally-trent; died Mar. 6, 1918, in London. Irish political figure. Leader from 1900 of the bourgeois Nationalist Party, which sought home rule.

Redmond’s policies reflected the gradual movement to the right of the home-rule leadership, as well as the leadership’s break with the popular masses and its willingness to compromise with the English bourgeoisie. At the beginning of World War I, Redmond agreed to the postponement of the implementation of the bill on home rule, which had been adopted by the English House of Commons in May 1914, until the termination of military operations. Redmond reacted negatively to the Irish Uprising of 1916.
