A light curd would form on top with a lovely whey underneath. This series started in 1995 and takes place in England. Fenianism obsessed British minds… at the end it seemed all too possible that Irish Home Rule would spark off the largest civil disruption in the British Isles since the 17th century… Failure to resolve the Irish problem by 1914 left a bitter legacy and was a major factor in giving birth to contemporary Northern Ireland violence.” The mid 1800s saw Irish Nationalist groups organise and take shape.
