This account of Thomas Wyse's educational work by his niece, Winifrede Wyse, also carries some extracts from the Repeal Association debates between the O'Connellites and the Young Ireland group centred on "The Nation" and extracts from the writings of Frank Hugh O'Donnell.


This view found a vigorous and able lay expression in the O'Connells. In the Debates of the Repeal Association Daniel and John opposed what they called "Godless Colleges" and demanded state endowment of separate Colleges for Catholics and Presbyterians, with Trinity to be kept for Protestants. They failed. The Queen's Colleges were established, though blighted by Church opposition and the lack of demand for higher education. However, when the present University system came to be established in 1908, the principles underlying Peel's measure were applied: the Colleges were non-denominational and remain so. This book reprints an account of Thomas Wyse's educational work by his niece, Winifrede Wyse; carries some extracts from the Repeal Association debates between the O'Connellites and the Young Ireland group centred on "The Nation"; and reproduces extracts from the writings by Frank Hugh O'Donnell, an Irish Parliamentarian, who had attended Queen's College, Galway.
