This chapter examines the start of Theobald Wolfe Tone's radicalism. It describes Thomas Russell, who was to become Tone's closest confidant for the remainder of his life. It discusses Russell's political views and highlights the gross understatement of his contribution in the development of Irish republican nationalism. It explains the message of Tone's Argument on Behalf of the Catholics and his essay On the Necessity of Domestic Union. This chapter also discusses his drafting of the founding resolutions for a society to be inaugurated during Belfast's celebration of the French Revolution on 14 July 1791.

Keywords:   Theobald Wolfe Tone, radicalism, Thomas Russell, Irish republican nationalism
