John Edward Redmond (1856-1918), Irish politician, Parnells successor as leader

John Edward Redmond (1856-1918), Irish politician, Parnell's successor as leader of the Nationalist Party 1890-1916. The 1910 elections saw him holding the balance of power in the House of Commons, and he secured the introduction of a Home Rule Bill, which was opposed by protestant Ulster. Redmond supported the British cause on the outbreak of World War I, and the bill was passed although its operation was suspended until the war's end. The growth of the nationalist party Sinn Fein (the political wing of the Irish Republican Army) and the 1916 Easter Rising ended his hopes and his power.
