Northern Ireland: The Influence of the Sinn Fein and the British Army
A 6 page contention that the role of the British Army has been significantly impacted by a number of factors throughout history. The author of this paper asserts that the Sinn Fein, an Irish nationalist political party, has comprised one of the most influential of these factors since its inception by Irish journalist Arthur Griffith in 1905. Indeed, the Sinn Fein has been instrumental in a number of political aspects, not the least of which has been the formation of an independent Irish republic. The activities of the Sinn Fein, therefore, have held tremendous significance to the role of the British Army in that they have kept military forces committed to the homeland, a commitment which has resulted not only in excessive manpower as well as economic commitments.
