Eamon “Bob” Price, husband of the actress Maire Nic Shiubhlaigh, also in Jacob’s in 1916, precedes his account of the surrender in Jacob’s with his views on “the influences which led to the establishment of Óglaigh na h-Éireann and the chain of events which culminated with the Truce.” He includes the general apathy after the death of Parnell, the Boer War, the end of land agitation, the establishment of the Gaelic League, Cumann na mBan and na Fianna, the 1913 Lockout and the formation of the Ulster Volunteers. His description of the surrender is low-key but vivid. At the time when he gave this statement, he had retired as a Major General in the Irish Army.
