By 1849, after the catastrophic Famine, the Young Ireland rebellion, the renewed Coercion Acts, the botched Encumbered Estates Act, and the collapse of the plan for Catholic endowment, Russell’s claim to understand and govern Ireland better was open to question. His failure damaged his own party’s belief in him as an expert on Ireland. In 1850, important changes took place in Ireland, within the Catholic Church, and in Russell’s own relations with Catholics that rendered a resumption of his plan for Catholic endowment or any other major reform more difficult. Meanwhile, althoguh there was some contradiction between Clarendon’s outburst against the bishops for interfering in national affairs and his own willingness to appeal to the pope, he was determined that the scheme should go ahead with as much approval as possible; and the chances of success, he believed, were good.
