The ideology of Irish Jacobitism and its influence on later political movements are examined. It is argued that popular Jacobitism in Ireland was sharply distinguished from British Jacobitism by the emphasis it placed on the Gaelic origins of the Stuarts, on Catholicism, and on Ireland's status as a distinct kingdom. It is further argued that the religious and national components of Irish Jacobitism did not disappear with the death of Prince Charles Edward in 1788, but persisted and constituted important factors in the political disaffection of the 1790s. The continuity between the disaffection of the Jacobite and post-Jacobite eras is shown using quotations from contemporary political verse.
