This document is a copy of the Proclamation of Martial Law in Ireland dating from 26 May 1916, from the papers of David Lloyd George. Ireland was governed under martial law until November 1916. At this time Defence of the Realm Regulations and other emergency measures were used and special military areas under military governors were proclaimed. Government repression in response to the rising - in the executions of the rebel leaders, mass arrests, internment and marital law - provoked public outrage and sympathy for the insurgents.
