Moreover variations on all of these versions of nationalism existed in the past. The question of nationalism and national identity in Ireland has, of course, played a central role in the debates engendered by so-called ‘revisionism’ in Irish historiography. Whereas ‘nationalist’ historians have been charged with projecting an ‘anachronistic Hibernocentric perspective, with associated nationalist themes’ into the past in order to provide modern Ireland with a respectable historical lineage, ‘revisionists’ have been accused of inverting the anachronism by ‘extruding the play of national consciousness from all but the modern period’ (Ellis 1994:180, Bradshaw 1994:209–10).

One thinks here of volumes like Writing Ireland (1988), Representing Ireland (1993), Inventing Ireland (1995) and Translating Ireland (1996).
