This chapter examines Irish history during the period from 1833 to 1891 or the so-called era of Charles Stewart Parnell. It discusses how Parnell and his parliamentary associates used the prominence they had won in the land war years to fashion a new kind of Irish political party. The chapter suggests that a major source of change during this time was the upheaval in agricultural and industrial prices and consumer demand on the British food market, which began in the 1870s.

Keywords: Irish history; Charles Stewart Parnell; parliamentary associates; land war years; political party; prices; consumer demand; British food market
