Irish Radicalism and the Roman Catholic Church in Quebec and Ireland, 1833-1834: O'Callaghan and O'Connell Compared
Abstract
An exploration of the affinity between Daniel O'Connell's goals for the people of Ireland and Dr.Edmund Bailey O'Callaghan's views as expressed in his 1833-34 editorials in Montreal's The Vindicator newspaper. O'Callaghan (1797-1880) was the Irish-born Patriote who became Louis Joseph Papineau's right-hand man in the Lower Canadian Legislative Assembly after the doctor's election in the fall of 1834. The author points out that O'Callaghan's bi-weekly editorials in 1833-1834 demonstrated similarity with the constitutional aims upheld in Daniel O'Connell's "Letters to the Irish People", reprinted in the The Vindicator during 1833. Papineau chose O'Callaghan as his lieutenant when he was elected to the Assembly because O'Callaghan was in contact with Daniel O'Connell, and Papineau needed the votes of O'Connell and his thirty or forty Irish radical followers in any Canadian reform debate in the British Imperial parliament.
