Ireland 1893-1914



With the fall of Gladstone's government in 1893, a historic chance to pass an Irish Home Rule Bill had passed. For the following years the conservatives were in government. The split of the liberals turned out to be permanent; the Parnellites remained divided until 1900, when both factions merged again, under JOHN REDMOND.
In 1907 the liberals again formed a government under Prime Minister HERBERT HENRY ASQUITH; the University Bill of 1908 created a (Catholic) NATIONAL UNIVERSITY in addition to the existing colleges in Dublin and Belfast. In 1912 another attempt was made to present an Irish Home Rule Bill. Discussion focussed on the treatment of Ulster. While the bill was still debated, WORLD WAR I broke out; the bill was passed, but its implementation postponed until after the war.
