This chapter focuses on the United Irish Society's loss of direction and disintegration during the spring and summer of 1793. It discusses the conflict between William Drennan and Theobald Wolfe Tone and explains that Drennan was insisting on the Catholics not to abandon reform and was annoyed that Tone appeared to be compromising on the issue. It also considers the dissolution of the Catholic Committee and the deepening of Tone's disillusionment at the internal situation of the country during this period in 1793.

Keywords:   United Irish Society, William Drennan, Theobald Wolfe Tone, reform, Catholics, Catholic Committee
