Ireland and the Home Rule Movement was published in 1908. Michael McDonnell believed that the ignorance of the English and Scottish people led to many of their objections on the question of Irish autonomy. Mr. Farnell and his colleagues, after the defeat of the first Home Rule Bill in 1886, established an agency in England for the express purpose of removing this ignorance. This book continues their work. McDonnell covers such topics as religion, education, economics and Irish history.
