  Sinn Féin - ninemsn Encarta
Sinn Féin had no official connection with the violence of the 1916 rising, but in the aftermath it was associated with the event by the press.
Sinn Féin's growth and popularity was further enhanced by the British threat in 1917-1918 to introduce conscription to Ireland in support of its war effort against Germany.
Provisional Sinn Féin's role was enhanced by the 1981 hunger strikes in Northern Ireland which ushered in a new policy of “the ballot box and the Armalite”, or in other words a strategy of a joint military and political campaign.

 Sinn Féin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sinn Féin (pronounced /ʃɪn feɪn/ in English, /ʃiːɲ fʲeːnʲ/ in Irish) is a name used by a series of Irish political movements of the 20th century, each of which claimed sole descent from the original party established by Arthur Griffith in 1905.
Sinn Féin was boosted by the anger over the execution of Rising leaders, even though before the executions, the Roman Catholic hierarchy, the Irish Independent newspaper (the biggest selling daily newspaper in Ireland then and now) and many local authorities actually called for the mass execution of Rising leaders.
Sinn Féin won 73 of Ireland's 106 seats in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland parliament at the general election in December 1918 and many of the seats it won were uncontested.

 Provisional Sinn Féin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term Provisional Sinn Féin is occasionally used, in the Irish media and elsewhere, to refer to the modern political organisation registered as Sinn Féin in Leinster House and led by Gerry Adams.
The term is also used when it is necessary to distinguish between the various entities that use or have used the name "Sinn Féin", or to emphasise the party's connections with the Provisional Irish Republican Army.
The term "Provisional Sinn Féin" is more usually used by opponents to challenge the parallels they draw between themselves and the Sinn Féin party that achieved independence for the south and west of Ireland in 1922.

 Gerry Adams - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He is President of Sinn Féin, which became the largest nationalist, republican or pro-Belfast Agreement political party in Northern Ireland in the 2005 UK general election.
Adams and others pointed to Sinn Féin electoral successes in the early and mid-1980s, when hunger strikers Bobby Sands and Kieran Doherty were elected to the House of Commons and Dáil Éireann respectively, to advocate that Sinn Féin become increasingly political and base its influence on electoral politics rather than paramilitarism.
Under Adams, Sinn Féin appeared to move away from being a political voice of the Provisional IRA to becoming a professionally organized political party in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

 World Press Review - Sinn Fein - Northern Ireland
