Ireland’s spirits are returning from the feeling of the Easter defeat. It is a time for recovery and a time for preparing the next chapter of Irelands quest for independence. It’s a time for Maggie to learn of the power of politics and the value of military force. To experience the strife of Dublin, and to feel the peace of home, and then in the end, watch her Ireland be broken in two.
