  Irish Rebellion of 1798 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Irish Rebellion of 1798 (Éirí Amach 1798 in Irish), or 1798 rebellion as it is known locally, was an uprising in 1798, lasting several months, against the British dominated Kingdom of Ireland.
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.
