    Catholic discrimination in Northern Ireland in terms of Housing and Employment

    5 star(s)

    This is particularly interesting because the majority of people in Fermanagh were Catholics, hence highlighting the extent of their discrimination. The Sunday Times also wrote that in Derry "of 177 salaried employees, 145 earning �124,424 - were Protestant, and only 32 - earning �20,420 - were Catholic" showing the dramatic differences in wages as well as representation between Catholics and Protestants. With the former being far more poorly paid, one can clearly see a significant amount of discrimination against Catholics in a different respect.

    What were the consequences of the 1916 Easter rising?

    4 star(s)

    Then up to May the twelfth a further twelve leaders were shot including James Connolly. The last rebel to be executed was Roger Casement by hanging on August the third. Overall seventy-five were sentenced to death, and two thousand to imprisonment. This turned public opinion in Ireland against the British government. This created a new wave of anti-British feeling. Nationalist opinion in Ireland was radically changing. Militant Nationalists began to attract sympathy. There were a number of short-term consequences of the rising. A small little known party called Sinn Fein formed in 1905 began to get noticed.

  • to what extent was Ireland moving toward an Irish Ireland rather than a British Ireland towards the early 1900-discuss

    "Griffith inverted the argument of Cooke more than a century previously: 'Ireland has maintained a representation of 103 men in the English parliament for 108 years ...The 103 Irishmen are faced with 567 foreigners ...Irishmen will marvel they once believed the proper battle-ground for Ireland was one chosen and filled by Irelands enemies.' The Dungannon Clubs began to merge with the Sinn Fein movement; A name given to those who supported Irish Independence; as opposed to home rule.) The name in English means 'And Ourselves'"

  • To what extent does the "Good Friday Agreement" represent a turning point for the Northern Ireland peace process?

    "In my opinion this gesture of potential co-operation shown by both the North and the South of Ireland depicts a positive future for Ireland. Due to this response to the Good Friday Agreement, I believe that this is a turning point in the history of Ireland, and that the outlook for the future of Ireland is indeed a lot brighter than it was. Therefore I believe that the Good Friday Agreement and the enthusiasm shown towards it is a major turning point for Ireland."

  • To what extent can it be argued that the Jesuits were the most important feature of the Counter Reformation?

    "When compared to the other new orders, the Jesuits did have a lasting effect within Europe. Their tactics as an army were successful, but obviously not everywhere as the threat of Protestantism still grew within and around Germany. England was admittedly a setback, but we have to think about if anyone could have made a real difference there with the strength of the crown at that time. They tended to blend the old style of Catholicism with a new panache that exited the potential priests e.g.: the spiritual exercises. Because of this their influence fluctuated between the decades and throughout different countries. But they would have been nothing without papal support and the council of Trent's support in the setting up of Colleges. It is in my opinion that the council of Trent and the Order of the Jesuits both aided the Counter reformation in there own ways which aided the Catholic faith in gaining back some of the trust they had lost from their people.
