, Canada and Australia, have been listed in abuse cases in those countries. This has raised questions about the oppressive power of the Catholic Church in Ireland and its influence on the Irish political process. Questions have been raised about the Irish ‘culture of deference’ and how this related to the abuse situation. Some wonder if the Church and state worked separately and together in covering up the sexual abuse of Irish children. Some also wonder if ‘IrishCatholicism has peculiar features, which, when exported throughout the world, contributed to the abuse of

to stay, maybe less because of the authorities’ threat that the founder of his order, St Alphonsus, might accuse him on the Day of Judgment, than on account of social pressure. Around the same time, tediousness and dissatisfaction with mind control were also slowly yielding to the intellectual and emotional quivering brought about by a new context. When his career started in 1974, the changes introduced by the Second Vatican Council were beginning to breathe new life into Irish Catholicism. As a young Redemptorist priest living in a community, he was able to

this perspective, Derek is making a positive statement about what it means to be an Orangeman alongside one’s fellow Orange brethren. Put simply, Derek is talking not just about hate, but also about love, a love of British Protestantism that is inseparable from a hatred of Irish Catholicism. Much of the ethnography above can be interpreted thus. In wanting to eject Catholics attending the pensioners club in the Orange Hall, or in writing ‘No Catholics allowed’ on the back of an organ donor card, Dennis is positively enacting fraternal love, a love that embraces

However, what is remarkable in the Trilogy and elsewhere is the 28 Five Irish Women extent to which O’Brien’s representation of a mature sexuality and feminine sensibility are entirely recognisable variations on the structure of feeling associated with certain strains of Irish Catholicism and popular Irish nationalism. She is keenly attentive to the

Catholic nationalism throughout the nineteenth century. While the Catholic leader, Daniel O’Connell, did not contemplate a political suppression of Protestants, he could envisage their future assimilation within a post-Repeal Ireland. In 1842 he outlined such a possible future to Paul Cullen, then Rector of the Irish College in Rome and later the architect of the ‘devotional revolution’ which modernised Irish Catholicism: The Repeal of the union would be an event of the most magnificent importance to Catholicity, of an importance so great and so valuable that I am

is not merely a question of chronology. A decade before Joyce’s novel, George Moore’s The Lake (1905) wove an anti-clerical critique of Irish Catholicism into a narrative of self-discovery through the honest acknowledgement of sexual desire. The novel begins with a parish priest in the west of Ireland, Father Gogarty, condemning from the pulpit the local teacher, Rose Leicester, who has become pregnant while unmarried. On hearing this condemnation she immediately leaves and makes her way to England. Through his correspondence with Rose over the subsequent years

is Catholicism or, more specifically, ‘Roman’ Catholicism. Irish Catholicism, according to Murphy, needed to look outward to European Catholic culture to avoid being co-opted by ‘the Victorians’. The contrast between ‘Irish’ and ‘European’ Catholicism was a characteristic trope used by mid-century Irish intellectuals, especially O’Faoláin, for whom a democratic Catholic European worldview offered a sustaining alternative both to an Irish Catholic nationalism in which the individual is suffocated by the imperatives of collective development and to an Anglo
