Irish Nationalists in America

Following a brief discussion of the fall of Irish Home Rule leader Charles Stewart Parnell, this chapter delineates the two major strands of Irish American nationalism (Home Rule supporters and republicans, who were now led mainly by John Devoy) and analyzes their positions on key social questions of the period, especially labor conflict, women’s rights, and the role of Catholicism. The last section of the chapter discusses the Home Rule crisis of 1912–1914, the support of the British war effort by Irish Home Rule leader John Redmond in 1914, and the importance of these events in shifting Irish American nationalists toward support for the republican position. It ends with a discussion of the role of Irish American nationalists in the planning of the 1916 Easter Rising.
