Postcard Activity

The divisions between Nationalists and Unionists became more intense as the British Government moved forward with proposals for Home Rule for Ireland. Both sides of the debate produced propaganda, organised events and made speeches.

Look closely at the sources here to identify the language, symbols and designs used by both sides.

Use the record sheet to help you record your answers.
