    hello

    studying for A2 theme 'Irish question' at the moment and i was wondering if there was any one out there that had or is studying for the same paper

    any suggestions on how to revise?
    tips on key themes

    or anything really related to it would be much appreciated...there seems to be so few people doing this option if there’s any one out there it would just be nice to know im not alone

    I did it last year at AS so its probably different
    The main themes I concentrated on were the tactics of the Liberals and Conservatives, eg whether the Libs actually cared by 1912..or they just introduced HRule as a corrupt bargain wiv Redmond. This would lead to the question of Asquith as a good leader and his method of wait n see esp. leading to the curragh mutiny
    I also concentrated on the fear of Nationalists and Unionists and the fact that neither would even attempt to compromise. Also not even moderate and extreme nationalists would compromise. I would add in the leadership and determination of Craig and Carson..
    Im sorry..thats all I can remember.. :hmpf: I forget like everything after ive revised and Ive given my notes to someone else for revision.. plus it depends what time frame ur studying
    Good luck xxx

    thanks for the reply....i think what you did was different...it sounds a little more like what I’m used to so I wish I was doing that instead!!!!
    ..this paper is unlike from anything iv ever done

    ..i have to learn 100 years of Irish history and then write about it thematically in the exam

    e.g. if they give me a que on land I have to go through a 100 years and pull out the relevant bits

    argh

    Are you studying Irish history from an Irish perspective or a British perspective because the sources would differ greatly?

    Well, we're doing the Irish question and its relation to Lord Liverpool and Robert Peel's governments. I could help you on that aspect of Irish history.

    Yeah, that would be good. Anything about Irish Nationalism; Conservative Catholicism and Political Radicalism?

    Hey, I'm doing Ireland. I have split my revision up into themes ; constitutional nationalism ie.o'connell, parnell, IPP and h/r 1912. then revolutionary nationalism ie.1798, 1801, 1848, 1869, 1916, and michael collins. then unionism so you've got the development of the orange order into the UVF, the Ulster covenant and their reaction to home rule in 1912-carson. then britains reaction to ireland, and economics, coz in jan there was a question about agriculture and industry. But remember - its breadth not depth - so always in the back of your mind, be picking out themes and highlighting where there is continutity, development and change. I'm still a little confused about how to structure the exam, so any help there would be grrreat

    I do CCEA and our Module 5 is a paper where we have to take in 1800-1900 and comment on all three strands of nationalism in Ireland (constitutional, revolutionary and cultural), then Module 6 is the sourcework exercise and we have to learn 1900-1925 in Ireland in detail. I am Irish though, which makes things a little easier- I've heard it all before! :rolleyes:
