Item #27866 The Home Rule Question. Redmond. W. H. K.
The Home Rule Question.

The Home Rule Question.

Fremantle: S.H. Lamb, 1905. First printing. Pamphlet. Interested Irishmen met at Mulcahy Brothers National Hotel in Fremantle, Western Australia in March 1905 gathered to support the Irish National Movement and were lectured to by W.H.K. Redmond, the MP for Wexford.

Author William Hoey Kearney Redmond [1861 - 1917] was the brother of John E. Redmond [1856 - 1918] who published a 16pp pamphlet of the same name in 1886. They both were Irish Nationalists, politicians, and advocates for Home Rule and travelled to Australia and the U.S. on fund raising and advocacy missions. "As a Nationalist, I do not regard as entirely palatable the idea that forever and a day Ireland's voice should be excluded from the councils of an empire which the genius and valour of her sons have done so much to build up and of which she is to remain".

Small 8vo, 8pp, printed green paper wrappers, staplebound, cover dusty, internally clean. Very good condition. Item #27866
