The French were ‘treated as guests rather than as prisoners of war’; on the other hand, around 2,000 Irish insurgents were killed in the aftermath of Ballinamuck. A larger invasion fleet set sail before knowledge of the final collapse of the Humbert expeditionary force reached Paris, and was dispersed off the coast of Donegal in October.

18208 The Union was designed to address a number of pressing political issues and to bolster an unstable Irish constitution. One source of instability lay with the Catholic 28 Disuniting Kingdoms, Emancipating Catholics community and with its uniform exclusion from representative politics; and it was Pitt’s intention that, just as the Union dealt with several subsidiary political questions (such as parliamentary reform), so it should incorporate or accompany some settlement of Catholic claims. Informal negotiations were conducted through 1799 between Cornwallis and the Irish hierarchy, and the outline of an agreement was sketched whereby emancipation would be traded for the concession to the crown of a negative veto over episcopal appointments.

The rising therefore helped to make the union function in the ascendancy interest; and it contributed to the gradual identification of Catholicism with the national struggle. Neither outcome would have been welcomed by the 25-year-old idealist, who went to the gallows with his elitist republicanism unshaken, and with an emotionally charged message for posterity. Posterity, however, would take the form of a tenaciously Catholic democracy that had little time for Emmet’s exclusivist convictions. 3 Disuniting Kingdoms, Emancipating Catholics, 1799–1850 I am the tall kingdom over your shoulder That you would neither cajole nor ignore.
