  1. Irish Nationalism
    1. Significant event
      1. Home Rule
        1. The Home Rule effectively symbolises the ideology and the beliefs of the Nationalists.
          1. During the 19th century the Nationalists in Parliament began to make steady progress towards achieving home rule
            1. In 1886 (in cooperation with the British Liberal Party) Charles Parnell brought a bill before the house of commons
              1. Knocked out in House of Lords (the first and second time it was presented)
            2. April 1912 a new bill was presented for Home Rule and it was accepted however without the outbreak of WW1 it was suspended and never got up and running after the war
              1. Home Rule was supported by Nationalists as it was seen as a stepping stone for an independent and united Ireland without using violence
            3. Historical Figure
              1. Charles Stewart Parnell
                1. Irish Nationalist, member of the British parliament, leader of the Irish home rule struggle
                  1. Elected to Parliament as part of the Home Rule League in 1875
                    1. In 1879, Parnell was elected president of the newly founded National Land League
                      1. By late 1881 he had become the accepted leader of the Irish Nationalist Movement

                          1. Consequently sent to jail
                            1. March 1882, he negotiated an agreement with Gladstone 'the Kilmainham Treaty ' in which he urged his followers to avoid violence
                              1. But this peaceful policy was severely challenged by the murder in May 1882 of two senior British officials in Phoenix Park in Dublin by members of an Irish terrorist group. Parnell condemned the murders.
                    2. Charles Parnell was a significant individual who played a key role in shaping the Irish Nationalist movement and particularly their political and parliamentary involvement and developing a voice for the party.
                  2. Political, religious and ethnic beliefs

                          1. Love of Irish culture, history and language are common themes among the Nationalists, however movements by some of the party towards revitalising the more traditional Gaelic customs were prominent around the 19th which was taken on by more radical Nationalists.
                          2. The resulting differing views, on politics, ethnicity and religion lead to past and present conflict
