Abstract:
With the outbreak of the Great War and the consequent suspension of the third Home Rule bill, the ideological conflict in Ireland which had threatened to turn into armed confrontation was in part transposed to the battlefields of northern France. That ideological conflict can conveniently be broken down into three separate lines of thought: Unionism, Home Rule, and separatism. None of this was new: Irish political history from Grattan's Parliament onwards is the story of the evolution of those forces which were to come to a climax in the years following the introduction of the 1912 Home Rule bill. The quasi-autonomy of 1782, the Act of Union and the subsequent agitation for Repeal, the emergence of a Catholic democracy, the growing pressure for Home Rule in the final quarter of the nineteenth century, and the evolution of Southern Unionism and Ulster Unionism ~ all of this was contained within hish political thought in the opening decades of the twentieth century.
