Garry Tregidga explores how the story of Trelawny came to be associated with the growing sectarian problems in Ireland during the late 19th

The Trelawny anthem has been closely associated with the popular culture of Cornwall since the nineteenth century. Even then it was commonly regarded as the Cornish national anthem and featured prominently in relation to a variety of settings ranging from election hustings to cultural events. This talk, however, explores how the story of Trelawny came to be associated with the growing sectarian problems in Ireland during the late nineteenth century and how a false version of its Cornish history was incorporated into Irish political narratives.
