A New History of Ireland, Volume VI


Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the developing crisis in Ireland during the period from 1907 to 1914. It explains that while the watershed period of 1903–07 was deeply inimical to the solution of Ireland's problems by a process of benevolent legislation, the following fourteen years seemed to point in the opposite direction. The chapter highlights the accomplishments of Augustine Birrell in the field of social reform and in having the Irish Universities Act enacted in 1908. It also discusses the activities of the Ulster Volunteers during this period.
