The introduction of the Third Home Rule Bill in the House of Commons (1912) sparked the Home Rule Crisis (1912-14). Ulster Unionists sought to resist the implementation of the Act by armed force and as a result, the Ulster Volunteer Force was formed. This section contains newspaper clippings from the Belfast Telegraph and the Northern Whig, amongst other periodicals, regarding Edward Carson’s tour of Ulster, the ‘Curragh Incident’ (1914), and Anti-Home Rule sentiment in Ireland and abroad.
