Depends on which side of the fence you sit I suppose. The Irish had many wars against the British, Scot and Scandinavians (each of whom ruled Ireland at some stage) so you could say that they were revolutionary wars or acts.

The 1917(?) Revolution is probably the most famous of all when the Irish stood up and fought the Brits out. The Brits were so shell shocked that they asked for peace talks. The talks resolved in Eamon De Valera becoming the first Irish PM of the Republic but the problem was that it separated the North or Ireland (and its four counties) into a separate kingdom still under rule britannia.

Since then there have been more uprisings in the North and more attempts to reunite Ireland but to no avail.

There was no "monarch of England" during the Revolutionary War. The war was fought against Great Britain. The monarch at that time was King George III, the King of Great Britain. He was also the King of Ireland.
