This chapter explores the emergence of new forms of Ribbonism in the 1840s and early 1850s, assessing their originality as well as their strong continuities with previous forms of both organized Ribbonism and generalized, scaremongering anti-Ribbonism. In the 1850s, the state retained its emphasis on the clandestine dimension. The state continued to expend considerable financial sums trying to break open rackets, rings, and networks that policemen, spies, and administrators dubbed Ribbonism. As the chapter shows, Donegal as much as Britain, and the well-trodden ground of Dublin and Belfast, would provide examples of this.
