Cultural Nationalism and Unionism, 1890–1914 book
The Parnell scandal had the effect of splitting the Irish Parliamentary Party (IPP) into pro- and anti-Parnell factions. The bitterness of this division meant that for almost twenty years the IPP was relatively weak. Nationalists grew frustrated at the party’s internal bickering and the nationalist movement began slowly to turn away from conventional politics. At the risk of oversimplification, Irish nationalism after Parnell shifted away from the political towards more cultural forms of action.
