The Gunrunning of 1914 was a pivotal event in the history of unionist opposition to the Third Home Rule bill. Prior to the landing of a consignment of rifles and ammunition for the Ulster Volunteers the Liberal government and nationalist politicians believed that unionist opposition was based on bluff and bluster. But unionists in Ireland, and particularly in Ulster, believed that Home Rule would be an economic, political, social and cutlural disaster and that their future as a Protestant minority would be under threat. After the gunrunning, one author could remark that events had passed the stage of mere play acting. This book is published by the Educational Affairs Committee of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland.
