The Irish Volunteers were the product of the Irish political crisis over the implementation of Home Rule in 1912 to 1914. The Third Home Rule Bill had been proposed in 1912 (and was subsequently passed in 1914) under the British Liberal government, after a campaign by John Redmond and the Irish Parliamentary Party, but was held off by mass resistance from Irish Unionists.
