Through the existence of a large, politically-aware middle class and the Repeal press, Dublin played a central role in the national movement. Dublin Repealers were mainly Catholics, hoping to improve their social position and restore prosperity. Dublin provided substantial funds for the Repeal Association, and set the pattern for organisation; its residents did much of the committee and electoral work. The leading Young lrelanders were mainly Dublin-resident professional men; support from Dublin's lower-middle classes provided a basis for the Irish Confederation. Latent interest in Repeal outside Dublin, stemming from religious and agrarian grievances, was stimulated and organised by the capital.
