The new nationalism, 1916–18
This chapter examines the emergence of a new nationalism in Ireland during the period from 1916 to 1918. It describes the impact of the Easter Uprising on the Irish parliamentary party and suggests that the first inkling that a new kind of nationalism was beginning to emerge came with the North Roscommon by-election in February 1917. The chapter discusses the victory of George Noble, Count Plunkett, in the February 1917 election and considers the impact of the North Roscommon defeat on the Irish parliamentary party.
