This chapter describes the political condition of Ireland in 1914. It explains that during this year, Ireland was a country still seeking a national identity, while deeply divided by issues inherited from a past which always seemed to impinge on the present. During this period, Ireland also hovered on the brink of new departures, whose destinations were obscured by the clouds of war on the continent, the role rhetoric of home rule, and the dust of Ulster Volunteer activities.
