Political Violence in Ireland

Charles Townshend

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the history of political violence in Ireland and of the Irish resisters and rebels. The level of political disorder in Ireland until the mid-19th century had been scarcely much different in scale to that in England. The contrast became sharper towards the later part of the 19th century. While the violence in England melted away, in Ireland it gathered force and volume. This divergence may be attributed to discrepancies in economic development and to the success of the English economic and political system.
