This book closes with a critical assessment of the Dublin nationalist press in mid-nineteenth century Ireland. It discusses the challenges that faced the political activists, the concept of the unity of class and creed, the ideological battles between constitutional nationalism and revolutionary nationalism, the creation of a new national identity, and the emergence of socialist nationalism and cultural nationalism. All of this was to impact later on a changing world in the decades around the turn of the century; particularly borne in mind are the journalists whose words and actions were to inspire leading nationalists, notably Arthur Griffith, James Connolly and Patrick Pearse. Despite the overwhelming opposition of the British government, a persistent drive to achieve some form of Irish independence did not cease, and it is argued that the Dublin mid-nineteenth century newspapers and their writers took a leading role in laying the foundations to make this happen.

Keywords:   Dublin nationalist press, nineteenth century Ireland, constitutional nationalism, revolutionary nationalism, national identity, socialist nationalism, cultural nationalism, Arthur Griffith, James Connolly, Patrick Pearse, Irish independence
