Daniel O'Connell was one of Ireland's most significant politicians. In 1840 he visited Belfast and while there was challenged to debate the Repeal of the Act of Union. He refused, partly for fear of violence. The visit produced extensive rioting, his meetings were cancelled, and he had to travel in disguise.


"Maume's introduction ... does everything an introduction should do-introducing the players, establishing context, explaining consequences-and it does it all superbly. This is not only a classic of Irish history but a necessary primer for any understanding of sectarian politics in the north, whatever the vintage. It is a marvellous document ... If the other volumes in the series are as well chosen and as well edited as these two ... Classics of Irish History will be one of the most important publishing ventures of the last twenty years." Irish Literary Supplement Spring 2005 "University College Dublin Press has now published over thirty 'Classics of Irish History'. These contemporary accounts by well known personalities of historical events and attitudes have an immediacy that conventional histories do not have. Introductions by modern historians provide additional historical background and, with hindsight, objectivity." Books Ireland Nov 2007 "Scholars of nineteenth-century Irish and Irish-American politics should reacquaint themselves with these classics, part of a long running and immensely useful series from University College Dublin Press. Patrick Maume has edited and written the introductions for no less than nine of the books in this series, lending them his breadth of knowledge and keen analysis that have made him one of the most learned and intellectually generous young scholars in the field."
