A New History of Ireland, Volume VI


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the political history of Ireland during the period from 1903 to 1907. It suggests that the full significance and complexity of the watershed in Irish history can be best understood by analysis of this period. Some of the major political developments during this time include the introduction and withdrawal of the Irish council bill, the Abbey Theatre riots, the resignation from the Irish parliamentary party of C.J. Dolan, and his decision to contest his old seat as a Sinn Féin candidate.

Keywords:   political history, Ireland, Irish council bill, Abbey Theatre riots, C.J. Dolan, Sinn Féin
