 Conradh na Gaeilge Story - Section 2   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
An Irish history class was started by the Central Branch just about the turn of the century, but the raison d'être of the movement seems to have come mainly from An Claidheamh Soluis, public lectures and speeches, and the writings in The Irish Peasant and The Leader.
In reply, An Claidheamh Soluis said that because the Daily Express was not favourable to the language it alleged that the Gaelic League was tieing itself to a political party opposed to the paper’s policies.
An Claidheamh said The Leader had invented the term "Anglo-Irish literature." Anglo-Irish literature was, it said a sort of half-way house in which certain English writers might rest while they flattered themselves with the thought that what they wrote had the virtues of both English and Irish literature.
