This chapter examines the work of Theobald Wolfe Tone as a Catholic agent. It describes his involvement in the activities of the United Irishmen and Catholic Committee, which indicate the progressive radicalisation of the Catholics. It suggests that Tone's appointment as assistant secretary and agent to the Catholic Committee in July 1792 inaugurated the most hectic and most productive year of his life and explains that it was during this time that he has proven to be an effective service writer.

Keywords:   Theobald Wolfe Tone, Catholic agent, United Irishmen, Catholic Committee, service writer, radicalisation of Catholics
