form of Protestant prejudice, often stirred up by local preachers such as Rev. Hugh Stowell of Salford or by itinerant lecturers, and Protestant proselytism through the allocation of Catholic orphans and foundlings to non-Catholic homes. Of even greater concern was the danger of ‘wastage’ of those who neglected their spiritual duties or fell away completely from the faith, seduced by bad company and competing distractions. To guard against such dangers and build up the faithful, a dense network of church-based fraternities, moral improvement and mutual aid

It stated that the child had therefore been ‘improperly placed in the wrong Home’, demonstrating the importance of religious affiliation and fears of proselytism.

social and moral complications that ensued. The nineteenth-century legacy of proselytism meant that the Roman Catholic Church was suspicious of, and hostile to, any Protestant or ‘non-sectarian’ organisations engaged in maternity and child welfare. Thus attention is also paid to the cultural association between morality and health, which did so much to complicate the development of a more comprehensive maternity and child welfare service in the succeeding years. Sectarian tensions undoubtedly limited the potential for co-operation between voluntary organisations and

As far as the church’s own institutional interests were concerned, emigration had turned out to be a largely unsought and unanticipated boon. It helped to blunt the impact of evangelical proselytism, further increased the priest-to-people ratio 236 Roddy_Population_Printer.indd 236 15/09/2014 11:47 Conclusion at home, gave an outlet for ever-increasing Irish

Revd M. H. MacInerny of the Irish Vigilance Association, who eloquently expressed the common fear that these ‘girls’ were the ‘principal harvest’ of soul-snatchers, still felt the need to justify his concern for these women.19 Locating the

Schemes to support or assist the children of working-class Dubliners during the lock-out of 191398 met with fierce opposition from nationalist quarters and the Roman Catholic hierarchy.99 A plan was conceived by the leader of the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union, James Larkin, and others to send the children of lock-out families to England on holiday. Infuriated by the threat of proselytism, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin, William Walsh, wrote to all the main newspapers warning Dublin mothers that they would ‘be no longer worthy of the name

It also implicitly presents Lucas as a forebear of Manning’s social-Catholic advocacy of workers’ interests (including promoting Catholic industrial schools in England to safeguard against proselytism) and the cardinal’s post-1886 support for home rule (regarded by most English bishops as proof of senile dementia).27 Parnell often cited Lucas as prefiguring his creation of an Irish party pursuing independent opposition towards all British administrations.
