This chapter consider Ribbonism within the context of developing and competing Irish nationalisms in Ireland and in Britain from the early 1870s. In particular it explores two key themes that offer additional layers of detail to the complex and evolving nature of Irish nationalist allegiances during the period. First, it presents a case study examining intra-Catholic conflict in south Ulster between Ribbonmen and Fenians during the late 1860s and early 1870s; and secondly, it considers the origins of ‘public Ribbonism’ from around 1872 and particularly the rise to prominence of the ‘neo-Ribbon’ ancient Order of Hibernians in Ireland from the early 1890s.

Keywords:   Neo-Ribbonism, Fenianism, Lady Day, Rednecks, Bogboys, Greenboys, Ancient Order of Hibernians, AOH
