This chapter examines the efforts of Theobald Wolfe Tone for Catholic emancipation in Ireland. It highlights the influence of the heightened sectional identities of the Protestants and the Ulster Presbyterians on Tone's campaign and explains that it was with his work as a Catholic campaigner that Tone was considered dangerous by the government. This chapter also discusses the involvement of the Catholic Committee in pushing the position of the Catholics to the forefront of a heated reform debate in the 1780s.

Keywords:   Theobald Wolfe Tone, Catholic emancipation, Ireland, Protestants, Ulster Presbyterians, Catholic Committee, reform debate
