1798 Rebellion in Rang 5 & Rang 6

Ireland in the 1700’s

In History Fifth and Sixth class learnt all about the American Revolution and the French Revolution. We looked at their causes and the effects they had on the rest of the world.

After this we looked at the effects of the French Revolution on Ireland, and the 1798 Rebellion in Ireland.

Our class then did projects on this Irish Revolution.

Here are some of the topics we covered:

  • Help from France

  • Wolf Tone

  • The Society of the United Irishmen

  • British ambush

  • The four main areas

  • The rising in Wexford

  • Boolavogue

  • The King in Wexford

    We put a lot of hard work into these projects and presented them to the class.

    Here is a peak at some of our work:
