Thomas Patrick Gill (1858-1931) was born in Ballygraigue, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary on 25 October 1858. Gill was a journalist, a prominent member of the Irish Parliamentary Party and an MP for South Louth from 1885 to 1892. He had an extensive knowledge of Irish rural life and of the island as he travelled delivering lectures in his role as secretary of the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction.
This document is a series of Gill’s notes on his reading of the causes of the Rising and of the political situation in Ireland in the aftermath of the insurrection. He sent his notes to Asquith in May 1916. Gill discussed the strength and nature of the Rising, the influence of accidental factors, the syndicalist element, the feminist element, Sinn Fein’s influence, the loyalty of nationalist Ireland, Redmond’s position, and the danger of certain expedients.
