There was no Irish way of being, apart from that in the Irish countryside, which they were prepared to sentimentalise, but hardly to live out. When they wished to speak of any matters of serious concern they did not have that 'retrospective field', of which Ferguson wrote in 1840, into which their words could move. Swift, the dissenting Republicans, the men of 1798, these were now a world away (Moore spoke of the men of 1798 as the ultimi Romanorum).
