    On the one hand, IRA control over crime and violence could gain support from the community, as a means to an end, as such a high volume of crimes committed in a majority Catholic area would have a negative impact on the Catholic community across Ireland as a whole, and by using extreme measures they could act as a deterrence. However, on the other hand it could have acted to almost undermine the movement itself, as an organisation which couldn’t control its members and supporters, and reverted…

    Set in the Easter Rising, Sean O’Casey’s play, The Plough and the Stars, utilizes its setting to discuss the consequences of war and the idea of making a blood sacrifice for Irish independence. Prior its inception, Irish nationalist theatre consisted of works such as Cathleen Ni Houlihan by William Butler Yeats, which evokes a mythological sense of nationalist pride as it uses the figure of Sean-Bhean Bhocht, Poor Old Woman, who needs a young man to help her remove the invaders from her home,…

    As a of a victim of colonization, Ireland has a long history of patriotic writers that comment on the effects of British colonialism, as well as themes of nationalism and conservatism through their writings. The introduction of Gothic literature, and its fearful conventions of the supernatural and the uncanny, has allowed Irish writers to align nationalist motifs within their texts through a more analogous narrative. As Laura Doyle writes, “The Gothic text has been shown to represent colonialism…

    England vs. Ireland England vs. Ireland Throughout James Joyce’s short story “The Dead” there is a very strong ongoing motif of England vs Ireland. This power struggle is depicted through the use of character interactions, underlying messages, and imagery throughout the story. James Joyce seemed to incorporate a lot of political issues into his work, which seems to be appropriate for the time period it was written. Written in 1914 “The Dead” by James Joyce was a very popular short story for…

    My earlier inquiries ported between Biblical Spirituality, Celtic Spirituality, and City Spirituality. An M. Div. mini-thesis investigated the spirituality of the insular Celts (du Toit, 2007). This study focussed on two Celtic liminality sniglets. For the island Celts, thin designated liminality. Thin Spaces (for instance, beaches and mountaintops) and Thin Times (such as dawn and dusk) thinned the veil between the natural and supernatural. Liminality, as an abstract zeitgeber, makes life and…

    In this essay I will argue that religion is not inherently violent, it is in the nature of the people to be violent. I will do this by showing, through various case studies such as the Caribbean and de la Casas and the troubles in Northern Ireland.

    gave the Irish government an advisory role in the affairs of Northern Ireland but besides that had no real power to it. Though it was passed it was essentially a failure in its primary goal; to foster peace and reconciliation between the two parties. The Sinn Fein party, the “political wing” of the IRA was vehemently opposed to the agreement. Unfortunately, the treaty also alienated the unionist. Only two parties in Northern Ireland actually supported the treaty. This ordeal led to the IRA…
