Abstract

Kerron Ó Luain Young and Old Ireland: Repeal Politics in Belfast, 1846–1848 From 1846 to 1848 internal acrimony between the more radical section of the nationalist movement to repeal the Act of Union of 1800, known as Y -oung Ire land, and the conservative wing, known as Old Ireland, led to the re-emergence of a local democratic republican tradition in Belfast. Although influenced at different junctures by the course of events at a national level, this B - elfast re publicanism, which drew on United Irish antecedents, manifested against a backdrop of elite control, antidemocratic practices, and strategic co - nvention alism practiced by the Repeal leadership clique based around Danie - l O’Con nell, and his son John O’Connell, in Conciliation Hall, Dublin. Such figures as John McVeigh, Francis McLoughlin, John Griffith, and the Presbyteria -n Sam uel Stewart led this evolution in Belfast from at least early 1846, toward openly adopting a radical position by mid-1846 through splitting with the - highly cen tralized Repeal Association, and later giving their allegiance to t-he Young Ire land-led Irish Confederation at the outset of 1847. es Th e Belfast figures were by no means mere hangers-on who blindly f
