Topic: Battles of Irish rebellion 1798


  
  Irish Rebellion of 1798 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The opposition of the Catholic Church in Ireland to the expected rebellion had been secured by the establishment of Maynooth College in the same year and it was, barring a few individual exceptions, firmly on the side of the Crown throughout the entire period of the rebellion.
As a result the immediate version of the rebellion put out by the victors was of a fanatical rebel mob capable of extreme savagery led on and encouraged by priests to drive all heretics from Ireland and this crude version of events is still, to some extent, the lasting popular memory of the rebellion.
By the centenary of the Rebellion in 1898, conservative Irish nationalists and the Catholic Church claimed that the United Irishmen had been fighting for "Faith and Fatherland", emphasising the role of Catholic priests in the Rising and deliberately obscuring the secular Enlightenment ideology of the mostly Protestant United Irish leadership.
