163 Notes Intro­ duc­ tion 1. The ­ phrase was ­ coined by the jour­ nal­ ist Eo­ ghan Har­ ris in the ­ course of the 1997 Irish pres­ i­ den­ tial elec­ tion; while he con­ tin­ ued to af­ firm the state­ ment as an ex­ pres­ sion of his view of ­ McAleese at the time, he later ad­ mit­ ted that her pres­ i­ dency had not con­ formed to his pre­ dic­ tion and that she had “al­ layed my fears and ­ aroused my ad­ mi­ ra­ tion and even af­ fec­ tion” (Sun­ day In­ de­ pen­ dent, 19 June 2011). 2. Irish Daily Mail, 23 Oct. 2010; Irish Times, 23 Oct. 2010. 3. The ter­ mi­ nol­ ogy re­ flects dif­ fer­ ing inter­ pre­ ta­ tions. As ­ William J. Smyth put it, “from most Irish ­ points of view the event is an up­ ris­ ing; from the Brit­ ish point of view it is a re­ bel­ lion.” See ­ William J. Smyth, ­ Map-Making, Land­ scapes, and Mem­ ory: A Geog­ ra­ phy of Co­ lo­ nial and Early Mod­ ern Ire­ land, c. 1530–1750 (Cork, 2006), 105. The use of the term “re­ bel­ lion” in the title of the cur­ rent work is based on its def­i­ ni­ tion in the Ox­ ford ­ American Dic­ tion­ ary as “an act of vi­ o­ lent or open re­ sis­ tance to an es­ tab­ lished govern­ ment or order”—a def­i­ ni­ tion that is suf­ fi­ ciently neu­ tral to be ap­ pro­ pri­ ate to the ­ events of 1641. For de­ tailed mod­ ern ac­ counts of 1641, on which my dis­ cus­ sion draws ­ freely, see Mi­ chael­ Perceval-Maxwell, The Out­ break of the Irish Re­ bel­ lion of 1641 (Mon­ treal, 1994); Nich­ o­ las Canny, Mak­ ing Ire­ land Brit­ ish, 1580–1650 (Ox­ ford, 2001), 461–550; Smyth, ­ Map-Making, Land­ scapes, and Mem­ ory, 103–65. 4.
