After 1848, much political activity in Ireland was directed into the emerging struggle for land reform. Nonetheless, the ideology of the Confederation had taken root, although its strongest advocates were in jail or in exile in France and the United States. This chapter moves the focus of Irish politics outside Ireland. Overseas involvement in the events leading to the 1848 rising was important, even if the much-vaunted Irish Brigade proved to be elusive (both to the authorities and to historians). Following Ballingarry the centre of Irish nationalism moved outside the island of Ireland. The presence of so many Young Irelanders in the United States, particularly New York, and the transportation of the state prisoners to Van Diemen's Land, extended Irish political debate to three continents.
