Press Opinion in Ireland’s Revolutionary Decade

Shifting Sentiment is a study of the evolving editorial commentary of Ireland’s nationalist provincial newspapers on the important political events in Ireland between the Home Rule crisis of 1914 and the Civil War of 1922-23. Its purpose is to determine the role of the press in reflecting and/or driving the rapid and radical changes in Irish nationalist public opinion within this period.


What emerges is a fascinating insight into how the public feeling can be both reflected and influenced by the press, and the power the press has in shaping events themselves.



Dermot Meleady is an author and historian, whose previous publications include John Redmond: The National Leaderand Redmond: The Parnellite. He was born in Dublin in 1949; he studied Science at University College Dublin and History at University of London.
