Course description

Journalism - Nationalism and Unionism in 19th Century Ireland: Nineteenth century was a pivotal time in Irish history. In this course we will examine the period from the Act of Union in 1801 to independence in 1922. During this time the country was governed by the UK Parliament in London through its Dublin Castle administration in Ireland. Ireland faced considerable economic difficulties in the 19th century. , We will look at The Liberator Daniel OÆConnell who campaigned tirelessly for Catholic emancipation and repeal of the Acts of Union. The Great Famine and how this completely altered IrelandÆs population structure irrevocably, the rise of Fenianism, Parnell and revival of Irish language and culture through the Gaelic League. The course will end with the early years of the 20th century looking at the Easter Rising of 1916 and the subsequent War of Independence resulting in the legislation for Irish Home Rule eventually being passed,
