McMahon here attempts with considerable success to get behind much of the stale and often contradictory accepted wisdom that sees the language movement as a refuge for those fearful of the modern or a breeding ground for the radicals who created an independent Irish state. Focusing on "the" popular phase of the nationalist movement--or what I Call nationalism in practice," McMahon offers a detailed analysis of the movement as "an accumulative process in which people's responses to ideologies were notional, that is partial, constructed, and shaped by the social environments in which they were propagated and through the cultural forms used by the people who adopted them.
In examining these "social environments," McMahon offers sound and provocative discussions of such central questions as the overwhelmingly Catholic League's frequently proclaimed non-sectarianism and the active participation of women in the organization from its earliest years.
Particularly revealing here are his insightful discussions of two early ease studies: the so-called Aran controversy in which League officials faced up to the parish priest for the islands, Father Murtagh Farragher, and his curate Father Charles White over the latter's refusal to preach and administer the sacraments in Irish; and the Portarlington controversy between Fr. O'Leary, a parish priest and nominal president of the local League branch, and the branch's actual leaders, including "Cu Uladh" or Peadar Mac Fhionnlaoich here P.

United in their determination to preserve and extend the use of Irish as a spoken language and artistic medium, members of the Gaelic League profoundly influenced Irish culture and literature in the twentieth century. McMahon explores that influence by scrutinizing the ways in which society absorbed their leaders' messages, tracing the interaction between the ideas propagated by the League and the variety of meanings ordinary people attached to Ireland and to being Irish.
Comparing press and police reports with census data and local directories, the author establishes the first comprehensive profile of League membership. McMahon's ability to access both English- and Irish-language sources offers readers a rare and richly detailed analysis of primary materials.
