    Hay was educated in France and Germany. But here we are in the realm of history rather than of folklore. A convention of Ulster Volunteers predominantly Presbyterian at Dungannon in demanded parliamentary reform a broadening of the franchise and the abolition of 'rotten' boroughs and Catholic emancipation the abolition of remaining anti-Catholic laws. In the autumn of Societies of United Irishmen were founded in Belfast and Dublin with the twin aims of parliamentary reform and Catholic emancipation. Union was duly accomplished in January

    Maxwell, William Hamilton. Please enter 5 or 9 numbers for the ZIP Code. Although Cruikshank has been accused of partiality amounting to sheer jingoism in his depiction of the insurgents members of The United Irishmen, founded in to agitate for equal political and religious rights for both Protestants and Catholicshe is more likely guilty of mere sensationalism, of exploiting violence to make a dynamic and engaging visual comment on the nature of mob violence. Thus, Cruikshank does not depict the rebellion as a military action, but an instance of widespread civil disturbance, with drunken and blood-thirsty Irish insurgents attacking innocent civilians and private property rather than engaging British regulars in combat.

    The organisation crossed the religious divide with a membership comprising Roman CatholicsPresbyteriansMethodistsother Protestant " dissenters " groups, and some from the Protestant Ascendancy. Republicanism and Loyalism both found real identity, the Orange Order and Maynooth College were both founded as the century ended with the rebellion in Ireland and the subsequent Act of Union. London: Baily Brothers, Cornhill, Malachy obeyed; and we remained near the market-house, waiting their arrival, until the soldiers approached.
