In what has become known as the St. Patrick’s Day Massacre, a planned gathering of some 200 members of the Irish Republican Army took place at the American Consulate in Dublin on that fateful day. The event, which began at 7 p.m., had been scheduled to be a commemoration of Ireland’s national day of remembrance for the 17th anniversary of the Easter Rising. The Rising was a historic event that involved a rebellion by Irish citizens against the rule of the British. It is one of the biggest single events in the history of Ireland and also one of the world’s most important events in modern history. The organizers of the event, the Irish Republican Army or IRA, claimed that they were holding the event in an effort to commemorate the suffering and lives of those who died during the rioting and demonstrations in 17 republicans.
However, the gathering quickly turned into what could charitably be described as a huge row between the two sides, with hundreds of police officers stationed on the streets surrounding the area. Despite this initial hostility, the event was declared a non-violent protest and the crowd quickly dispersed after about thirty minutes. The scene became so tense that at least one member of the IRA was injured during the scuffle and taken to hospital. The entire event has become a cause cued for politicians from all over the world to address the issue and reiterate their commitment to ending violence in Ireland.
Much of the ire placed upon the IRA stems from the fact that they claimed responsibility for the attack using what is known as’revenge’ tactics. In response to the claim, the government and garda services have been conducting Operation Resolve, an investigation into the dissident republican group. Events include posters being defaced with pro-repression slogans and reports of intimidation from the Garda seen on the way to the event. Additionally, a member of the public was recently attacked in her home by a masked IRA man.
In response to the growing public concern, politicians across the world have been calling for tighter security measures. Event handlers are being requested to report back to the premises before the event and carry identification badges. Event handlers are also asked to stop on the street for short periods of time and to not go door to door soliciting members. All these steps are being taken in an effort to bring about calm and order in the area where the events are taking place.
Using a combination of techniques, event handlers are able to control large crowds effectively and safely. The event handler has the dual responsibility of ensuring the safety of those in attendance while ensuring that no serious problems take place. Event handler companies use a combination of techniques in order to facilitate this. Some methods allow for better communication between the event source and the event handler and allow the handler to effectively manage crowd control. Other techniques allow the handler to enter and exit the event loop smoothly, ensuring that everyone gets on with the events running smoothly.
The most effective event handlers employ both strategies. The best event handlers employ both direct and indirect mouse movement to create mass confusion. Some techniques used by event handlers include using the crowd as a source of distraction, confusing and overwhelming the crowd, creating sudden disruptions in the event, creating confusion in the event loop and disrupting the flow of events. A mixture of all these techniques allow the event handler to control the situation and create maximum impact in limited space. The best event-driven programming utilizes these techniques in an efficient manner to provide an experience that exceeds the expectations of the event attendees.
