The aftermath of Parnell, 1891–1903

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines political developments in Ireland following the death of Charles Stewart Parnell. It explains that the political vacuum created by Parnell's death remained untenanted until the reunion of the Irish parliamentary party in 1900 and the return of the liberals to power six years later, which allowed the struggle for home rule to be taken up again. The chapter argues that political events in Ireland between 1891 and the middle of the first decade of the twentieth century moved not only sedately, but in a variety of directions which are somehow connected with one another.

Keywords: political developments; Ireland; Charles Stewart Parnell; political vacuum; Irish parliamentary party; liberals; home rule
