Compton Mackenzie, author of the novel on which the film is based, also has a small role as Captain Buncher. Many were in fact swallowed by oblivion; when we examine the writing of Tirechan we encounter obscure references to tribes which are quite unknown to the later genealogical tradition. He was older than I had reckoned, his hair completely silver, and for the first time I saw the stoop of his shoulder, saw that his leg was stiff. He writes in a journal about Ireland: "Remove me from this land of slaves, Where all are fools and all are knaves; Where every knave and fool is bought, Yet kindly sells himself for naught; Where Whig and Tory fiercely fight, And when their country lies at stake, They only fight for fighting's sake, While English sharpers take the pay, Swift's family moved to England after his birth, but at age 3, Swift returned to Ireland to live with his uncle.

WOULD YOU PREFER TO BE BROUGHT UP IN AN IRISH CITY? Yeats was identified as the chief ‘literary-Fenian’ inspiring the living generations to join the martyred dead. He suggests that it was certainly a view that the imperial propaganda of the time wanted to impress on everyone,and that newspapers were unlikely to publish anything to the contrary. Its vocabulary prizes terms like "unified" and "centred," for in proposing their contraries - edges, margins, fragments - such terms trivialise and thus silence dissent.

Only in the 1990s, when progress toward peace became tangible, did the economic situation brighten. At a time when employment opportunities were reasonably limited, the RIC seemed to offer a sound career and, in general, those in it were loyal to Britain and the government. The Normans initially controlled the entire east coast, from Waterford to eastern Ulster, and penetrated a considerable distance inland as well. From August 1969 until March 1970 most of the violence that took place was between loyalists and the British army.

[383] Forms of Christianity have dominated religious life in what is now the United Kingdom for over 1400 years. [384] Although a majority of citizens still identify with Christianity in many surveys, regular church attendance has fallen dramatically since the middle of the 20th century, [385] while immigration and demographic change have contributed to the growth of other faiths, most notably Islam. [386] This has led some commentators to variously describe the UK as a multi-faith, [387] secularised, [388] or post-Christian society. [389] In the 2001 census 71.6% of all respondents indicated that they were Christians, with the next largest faiths being Islam (2.8%), Hinduism (1.0%), Sikhism (0.6%), Judaism (0.5%), Buddhism (0.3%) and all other religions (0.3%). [390] 15% of respondents stated that they had no religion, with a further 7% not stating a religious preference. [391] A Tearfund survey in 2007 showed only one in ten Britons actually attend church weekly.

And from the interplays of, for instance, Bob Cobbing's sound poetry and Linton Kwesi Johnson's work, emerged a renewed interest in performance, in sounded poetry, which can perhaps be traced back to Bunting (Maggie O'Sullivan traces her own concerns in that way).
