Why Some Forms of Opposition Were More Successful than Others in the Pe
Why Some Forms of Opposition Were More Successful than Others in the Period 1798-1921 The Act of Union, 1801. Ireland was to be joined to Great Britain into a undivided kingdom, the Dublin parliament was to be abolished. Ireland was to be represented at Westminster (all were Anglicans), the Anglican Church was to be recognised as the official Church of Ireland, no Catholics were to be allowed to hold public office and there was to be no Catholic Emancipation. Immediately we can see from this that any form of competition would be to destroy this act. Fundamentally it destroyed all catholic rights and constrained them to renounce their Catholic faith and take on a Protestant one. In Ireland Daniel OConnell developed a reputation for his radical political views. By the early 1920s the Irish people started to listen to OConnells views and he gathered a large group of victualsers. OConnell had many aims in his political career. OConnells goal was to bring down against the act of union. When the Act of Union was passed in 1801 it did not help the Irish. It evidently brought problems and distrust to the Irish people. OConnell organised a meeting to discuss the end of the Act of Union, three quarters of a million Irish saturnine up. They were known as Monster Meetings. We can see that OConnell successfully created an Irish commonwealth movement and completely changed the British view of the Irish. The British now had a certain amount of respect for the Irish and even feared and threatened their movement. This support from the people could show us the later success that OConnell has in his opposition, as a movement without opposition would ultimately ... ...d in the cruellest yet impelling way possible. Collins achievements were many he helped fight the British to a stalemate by changing the rules of warfare and setting up an science network to rival the Empires. He helped negotiate a treaty, which gave Ireland the first stepping match to become a Republic, and oversaw Irelands turbulent transition to democracy. His achievements were, however, not without a price. He precipitated the bloody War of Independence against the British and the treaty deal brought hazard from London split the state of matter into two fiercely opposing halves and plunged the country into the throes of a traumatic civil war. Thus ultimately opposition demand to be well organised and have enough support to succeed, original nationalism had this through its methods of working through the system.
