Intro In the period from the 1641 until 1692, Ireland was plagued with continuous political conflict, rebellions, violence and civil warfare. This period of Irish history was driven by violence as it was prevalent throughout the whole country and it is the defining theme of that fifty-year span. What sparked off the violence, that prevailed for just over half a century, was the 1641 Rebellion which began because of fear of civil war on both sides of the religious divide. Oliver Cromwell was sent to Ireland to crush the rebellion and this lead to harsh and drastic changes both in Ireland and in England. In England these changes were political, and in Ireland the changes affected all aspects, including increased unrest.
The Irish were at Louisbourg and at the founding of Halifax, and many Irish were employed in the summer fishery along the province's Atlantic coastline that was known to them for centuries as Talimh An Eisc ('The Land of the Fish'). In most communities, the Irish were the first settlers in this province, however the majority of Irish settlers came to Nova Scotia in the mid-1700s or between 1815 and 1845. The Irish came to Nova Scotia because Ireland was mainly a country of farmers and labourers, with an economy that depended on Great Britain. These reasons, plus the idea of owning their own land in North America, led many Irish to emigrate, particularly from the northern counties of Londonderry, Donegal, Tyrone and Antrim. Soon other Irish settlers came joined by others who had previously emigrated from Northern Ireland and were living in New Hampshire.
A common archetype is the rebel archetype and can be seen in many books and non-literary works like movies or songs. The rebel represents bravery in the face of injustice and going against the beliefs of the majority no matter how radical or illogical it may seem at the time because they will never give up on their beliefs. A rebel in literature always opposes the higher power, not afraid to fight, whether it be verbally or physically, to succeed in bringing power to an often oppressed group. In most literature the rebel, seen as the underdog, stands up for good against an evil force, however, the rebel can also be antagonist of the work. Whether they represent good or evil, they often inevitably lead to the breakdown of society.
The Irish emigrated for a better life away from the famine. Approximately 1.3 million of the population was estimated to have emigrated in the prompt famine period, with the despair and depression that trailed extended the decline until the subsequent half of the 20th century. These migrants predominantly ended up in mostly North America, and some in Australia and Britain. “Between 1845 and 1855, 1.5 million people left for good. In 1845, emigration was at the pre-famine rate of 50,000 per year.
These growing tensions and an increase in violence between the Nationalist Irish Republican Army (IRA) and the Protestant Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) led to the beginning of The Troubles: a period of civil unrest and killings that lasted for over twenty years. This conflict was increased by the introduction of the British army in Northern Ireland. The introduction of internment without trial in August 1971 further increased tensions amongst Catholic and Protestant communities. Of the 342 men interned on the suspicion of violent acts, none were Protestants. While the Irish Republican Army believed in the use of violence in order to achieve equal rights for the Catholic community in Northern Ireland, The Civil Rights Movement, led by The Northern Ireland
With Irish slave owners beginning to abduct and obtain people as not just retaliatory means against the Scandinavian forces but also other Irish, not just for personal slavery but for sale as well. With several events where Irish clans would take hundreds of slaves, such as Uí Néill who captured as many as “twelve hundred” in a raid in 1031 and Ardgar mac Lochlainn in 1059 and 1062 taking 200 and 1,000 captives, respectively. This Irish slave trade developed further in the 11th century when Viking raids declined, probably due to peaceful Viking settlement in Dublin and as peaceful slave trade began. It is even suggested that the Irish slave trade became incredibly large and even contributed massively to the Scandinavian slave trade, with most of the captives from Irish-on-Irish raids being directly funnelled into the Scandinavian slave trade in Dublin. Eventually, the Irish slave trade succeeded the established Viking slave trade in the 11th century, as evident from the evolution of the Viking, followed by Irish raids.
