Interesting Record: Nation, The;
Motto: "To create and foster public opinion in Ireland and make it racy of the soil - Chief Baron Woulfe."

"The Nation was one of the most influential periodicals ever published in Ireland; it was the organ of the Young Ireland movement.”

“The contemporary European strands of cultural nationalism, separatism, liberalism, and a physical force philosophy meet in The Nation. Apart from its political influence and reflection of contemporary affairs, the paper in one way marked the beginning of Anglo-Irish literature in the strict sense and was a direct influence on Mangan and Yeats."

Levitas: "Earnest cultural nationalist W.P. Ryan quit his post as editor of the Irish Nation and Peasant in 1910, pleading lack of both funds and inspiration, and concluding that 'journalism at the best is an indiscretion which no literary-minded individual can entirely justify to his or her higher self'" (60-61).
