Home Rule Ireland: From the Famine to the Easter Rising (1850-1916)

Irish politics, culture and ethnicity forged a new and potent sense of Irish nationalism in the late 19th century. Epitomised by Home Rule as a parliamentary reform movement, Gaelic and Anglo-Irish Revivals also appealed to the Irish people. A convergence occurred amounting to a re-definition of what it meant to be Irish and a nation but led to armed uprising rather than political resolution.
