This chapter discusses Saunderson’s political preoccupations in the historical traditions of his family. His attitude to Irish Catholicism and to Nationalist aspirations owed much to the historical interrelationship between his own clan and the O’Reillys. The imperfect nature of the Cavan plantation and the lingering resentful presence of the O’Reillys gave an edge to Saunderson’s convictions; but while he was in many ways indebted to these Gaelic precursors, his conception of politics and of parliamentary responsibility was tailored by other more immediate influences.

Keywords:   Irish Catholicism, Nationalist aspirations, O’Reillys, politics, parliamentary responsibility
