Are we talking Home Rule in Ireland?
Self determination is the right and goal of all countries and peoples - individual autonomy was one of the great developments of the Enlightenment philosophers - so the people of Ireland were understandably keen to make decisions for themselves. ireland had suffered significant economic hardship in the previous century, which made matter worse. Influential figures in the struggle for Home Rule were Wolf Tone, Eamon de Valera and Michael Collins. The impact of these figures can be seen in Ireland today - De Valera founded Fianna Fail, the political party that was only recently ousted from government in Ireland.
