"Native" Nationalism and Unionism: Towards the Emergence of Two Antithetical Nationalisms in Late 19th Century Ireland

Abstract : This article is based on the premise that Ireland's main political ideologies, nationalism and unionism, are two contradictory forms of nationalism: the first is characterised by its "native" nature, the second by its supranational dimension, based on the British model of imperial nationalism. While their deep roots undoubtedly date back to the 1790s, their rivalry did not appear in the spotlight of Irish politics until the late 19th century. Subsequently, "native" nationalism and unionism were to shape the history of Ireland, at least until the mid-2000s, on the basis of a political and ideological antagonism unique in Western Europe.
