William Drennan played an active part in the Irish Volunteer movement in the 1780s; and in the campaign of the Protestant interest in Ireland against the passing of the Act of Union during the years after the suppression of the 1798 Rebellion. The first volume contains his most influential pamphlet, the Letters of Orellana, published in 1784 for the purpose of re-invigorating the reform movement of the Volunteers, which was then at a low ebb. Also included are Drennan’s letters to William Bruce, in which the United Irish movement is foreshadowed; and a selection from the letters exchanged between Drennan, his sister Martha, and her husband, Sam M’Tier. Most of the 200 items in this section are appearing in print for the first time. A number of poems written by Drennan round out this book.
