This chapter examines the situation in Ireland during the outbreak of World War I. While the war refrigerated the Irish question, the issue continued to evolve, stimulated rather than stifled by the new circumstances that the war introduced. The chapter suggests that the tone of the wartime relations between Ireland and Britain at the official and public level was set by John Redmond's celebrated performance in a debate at the House of Commons in August 1914.

Keywords: Ireland; World War I; Irish question; wartime relations; Britain; John Redmond; House of Commons
