(p.198) 8 Cultural Politics: National Regeneration and Ethnic Revival
Irish, Catholic and Scouse

This chapter analyses the strength and dynamism of new cultural nationalists, specifically following a chronological path through nationalist cultural endeavour. It also emphasises an important shift in focus from contestation of host stereotypes to inculcation of ‘Irish-Ireland’ culture. Cultural nationalism served as an inspirational and aspirational force in the new self-assertive political mood of the 1880s, attaining a more rigorous and exclusive tone in the 1890s. It is shown that the threat of disturbance by cultural activists encouraged the management of the Liverpool Repertory Theatre. Furthermore, as Home Rule was inactively introduced, pending the conclusion of war, a small number of activists was to set their duty very differently.
