|Title:||The 'Union' Representation of 1703 in the Irish House of Commons: A case of mistaken identity?||Authors:||McGrath, Charles Ivar||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9701||Date:||Nov-2008||Online since:||2019-03-26T13:47:49Z||Abstract:||In October 1703 the Irish House of Commons agreed a lengthy representation to Queen Anne which has since been used by historians as evidence of significant unionist sentiment in Ireland. This article examines the origin, context and purpose of the representation. In particular, it addresses the extent to which events in Ireland were influenced by the early negotiations for the Anglo-Scottish Union, and advocates a greater contextualisation of the evidence used to argue for the existence of pro- and anti-union sentiment in late seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century Ireland.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Journal:||Eighteenth-Century Ireland||Volume:||23||Start page:||11||End page:||35||Copyright (published version):||2008 Eighteenth-Century Ireland Society||Keywords:||Parliaments; Irish politics; Protestantism; Irish history; Parliamentary system; Labor union representation; Citizen grievances; Voting; Political parties; Political representation||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
