(p.181) 4 Pacification
Political Violence in Ireland

Charles Townshend

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the role of the pacification of Ulster in the political violence in Ireland during the 19th century. It has been noted by leading authorities that the main objective of the 1881 Land Act was the detachment of Ulster from Irish nationalism. If this assertion is correct, then it can be concluded that the land policy was uniquely but fatally successful. This is because the cultural distinctness of the North came easily to delineate a new arena of political confrontation.
