Kilmainham ‘treaty’

Kilmainham ‘treaty’, 1882. In October 1881, Charles Stewart Parnell was arrested and imprisoned in Kilmainham gaol (Dublin) under the government's emergency measures ‘on reasonable suspicion’ of encouraging violence. In April 1882 Gladstone opened negotiations with him. In exchange for his release and a government promise to help with tenants' arrears of rent, Parnell agreed to denounce violence and appeal for law and order. The Irish chief secretary, W. E. Forster, resigned in protest. His replacement, Lord Frederick Cavendish, was murdered in Phoenix Park the day he arrived.
