This chapter considers Dublin Ribbonism in the age of radicalism. It frames the conspiratorial aspects of Ribbonism and the larger context of spies, informers and their collusion with the state. It introduces, through the agency of men such as Major Sirr, Dublin’s chief police official, the men who were in his pay, and the Ribbonmen whom they together put on trial. The chapter identifies the 1820s as a crucial decade in the development of Ribbon collectivism.
