Cameron Seymour HISTORY How successful were Peels policies towards Ireland between 1841-6 Success I this context can be considered as - Making the other members of the Tory party content - Making the Public of Ireland content In more still more detail success can be defined by judging - If the Irish Protestants were content - If the Irish Catholics were content - If the policy contradicted past opinions views If Peels policy can satisfy all of the above criteria then that would be a success ratio of 66 if the English and Irish Catholics werent happy the success ratio would be just 35 Act of Union - 45 successful Daniel OConnell set up the Repeal Association in 1841 Its main objective between 1841-6 was to repeal the Act of Union but Peel - being a Tory and thus against change - threats to use governmental force to uphold the act This makes the Tory party happy as well as the English and Irish Public but OConnells Repeal Association is not happy OConnell plans to hold a big meeting to highlight the importance of the acts repeal This would make the Irish public feel great vengeance so Peel bans the meeting by passing a Coercion act then arresting OConnell on grounds of conspiracy After this the Repeal Association breaks down and this is success in Peels eyes But in mine Peel only satisfies the criteria for success by abusing his power Other areas of failure as a leader lie with the Irish Nationalists This is because once OConnells peaceful measures were shown as unsuccessful the Irish Nationalists became much more violent as this was seen as the only way to bring about political change The Devon Commission 1843 was set up by Peel looking into the conditions for Irish people obviously was trying to please the Irish ProtestantsCatholics Devon was asked to investigate land tenure in Ireland This all seems fine
