This book traces the impact of the Great War on cultural and religious nationalism and its role in the rise of radical Irish nationalism, ultimately leading to the events of 1916 and the Easter Rising.

This book examines the political transformation and radicalization of Ireland between the outbreak of the First World War, August 1914 and Sinn Fein’s landslide electoral victory in December, 1918.

It argues that the myths, memories and symbols of the Irish nation formed the basis for interpretation of the events of the Easter Rising, and that this interpretation stimulated members of the Irish nation to support radical nationalism. The book calls this phenomenon the Cultural Trigger Point.

Through an examination of a variety of sources, the book traces, in particular, the impact of the Great War on cultural and religious nationalism, and its role in the rise of radical Irish nationalism.
