The Sniper Summary

In the short story ‘The sniper’ by Liam O Flaherty, the author shows us a plot that deals with oppression and revolution. The Republicans and the Free Staters are one and the same – it is the British Army they are fighting. The English had a history of invading and taking over Ireland for themselves. They exacerbated the unfairness of this by making it possible for English people/Protestant people only to gain high rank and influence. Many Catholics felt cruelly and unjustly treated and banded together in brotherhoods to fight for a republic. Many knew they would have to sacrifice their own lives to the cause as there were so few of them. The sniper knew this too, but the enemy he ended killing turned out to be a brother.
