Abstract

Patrick Pearse was a major figure in the struggle for Irish independence from the United Kingdom. As a gifted scholar and teacher, he outlined his views for Irish education in an essay entitled "The Murder Machine". The presented research argues that Pearse had both nationalist revolutionary ideas and traditionalist ideas, bringing them together in a paradoxical vision for the future of Ireland and its children, and that this vision is what ultimately led to the Easter Rising of 1916.
