  Irish Parliamentary Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The 1916 Easter Rising and the British reaction to it, radicalised Irish politics to such an extent that the IPP lost almost all of their seats in the 1918 general election to the more militant Sinn Féin, and was dissolved.
The greatest achievement of the IPP was the introduction to Irish society of parliamentary tradition and all that went with it -- a fully up and running local government administration with its diverse institutions, which had rooted itself more deeply than anyone could imagine into the life of the country.
This is perhaps the highest tribute that can deservedly be bestowed upon the old Irish Parliamentary Party, which during fifty years of hard and exacting as well as frustrating parliamentary labours, established and fostered the development of representative institutions which gave stimulus to democratic action and discussion at every level of political envolvement.

In a Declaration Sinn Féin proclaimed an Irish Republic, (abolished again in 1921 under the Anglo-Irish Treaty), with a new parliament, called in the Irish language Dáil Éireann, that is the Assembly of Ireland.

A nationalist by birth, whose father had been a nationalist Irish MP he was educated by the Jesuits in Clongowes Wood, one of Ireland's premier public schools, and then in Trinity College Dublin.
Though large numbers of Irish men had willingly joined up, enforced conscription created a backlash that boosted Sinn Féin, the small monarchist party that had played no part in the Rising, but which having been wrongly 'blamed' by Britain and the Irish media, was then taken over by surviving Rising leaders, under Eamon de Valera.

 Home Rule League - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
As the IPP it was regarded as the first ever professionally organised, whipped political party in British political history.
Because of this the party rapidly became divided, between the less committed members of Parliament, many of whom were from an Irish aristocratic or gentry Church of Ireland background and other more radical members who gathered around Belfast MP and Meath MP Charles Parnell.
In 1880, the radical Parnell was elected chairman of the party, and in the 1880 general election, the party increased its number of seats.

 Ireland's OWN: History   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The election effectively marked the end of the Irish Parliamentary Party (IPP) and the entrance onto the political stage of Sinn Féin, a party which, prior to 1917, represented the political opinion of a minority within a minority in Irish politics.
The consolidation of the party strengthened it once more, but the unity witnessed in the party in the 1880s was not to be seen because of remaining internal differences.
Although the by-election in Roscommon resulted in the first defeat of the IPP by Sinn Féin, the victory was largely attributed to the obvious emotional factor that existed because of the candidate’s connection to a martyr.

 "Against the Red Flag" : Socialism and Irish Nationalism 1830 - 1913   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Irish nationalism, as it developed in the 19th and early 20th centuries was an eclectic mixture of aspects of various political doctrines, not necessarily of Irish origin, which were gradually amalgamated in different forms by the groups who adopted a policy of Irish independence.
Irish nationalist leaders were terrified that workers would become aware of this fact and thus the true nature of their oppression had to be clouded in myths which attempted to explain the foreignness of capitalism and to promote the belief that Irish leaders and employers would not exploit their fellow Irish workers.
The Irish Worker goes on to allege that the councillor responsible for tabling this motion was the organiser of scabs during the strike.

Parnell's unified Irish block came to dominate British politics, making and unmaking Liberal and Conservative governments in the mid 1880s as it fought for home rule (internal self government within the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland) for Ireland.
Parnell was viewed as an Irish national hero, referred to as the Uncrowned King of Ireland, a term originally coined to describe Daniel O'Connell.
When at a party meeting, he challenged Gladstone's intervention with the question, "Who is the leader of the party?" a notoriously waspish MP, Tim Healy responded with the legendary "Who is the mistress of the party?" putdown.

Their members dismissed home rule as inadequate, were contemptuous of the IPP’s dependence on Westminster and on British politicians, and put forward alternative ideas both regarding nationalism’s aims and means.
Though IPP unity was restored in 1900 under Redmond’s leadership, and Westminster passed a number of reforms beneficial to Ireland (re land, education, etc.), the party consistently failed in its efforts to win Irish home rule, the single issue with which it was most closely identified.
The IPP was all but obliterated by Sinn Féin in the 1918 election; its representation fell from over 70 seats to just 6.
