Summary Edit

Hints & Hits 11: "National Education", William Tell, Dublin, 1844

Archbishop Whately appears again as chair of the Board of Education for Ireland. Here O'Connell, the 'Kerry schoolmaster', thrashes Attorney General Smith for insolence, while other minsters await their turn. On the floor is O'Connell's textbook - 'Grattan, Flood and Chjarlemont on Irish Laws', a reference to the eighteenth-century Protestant Patriot tradition which O'Connell appropriated for provide a non-revolutionary historical precedent for the campaign for Irish self-government or 'legislative independence'. The cartoonist once more sees no contradiction between the slogan of 'moral force' and the allegorical depiction of disciplinary violence against derserving culprits.
