I just want to note that filigree10 has persuaded me to alter my post about Fantasy and the Easter Rising. I had noticed that the account of how Lord Dunsany was injured was rather different from James Stephens' eyewitness account of how "Sir Horace Plunkett's nephew" was injured, but I assumed that Dunsany was embellishing his account; how likely could it be that his uncle, Sir Horace Plunkett, had two nephews who were both injured during the Rising?

But of course Sir Horace was a man of many talents, and many nephews, and it was indeed the case that the incident involving Lord Dunsany - injured by the rebels - was entirely different from the incident involving Thomas Ponsonby of Kilcooley - injured by the British in a friendly fire incident. So I have corrected my account, with thanks to filigree10.
