Summary/Abstract: This article examines Polish and Irish political co-operation and agendas in 1830s London. It analyses the relationship between the democratic Polish political refugees of the Great Emigration, many of whom supported the Chartist movement, and the London Irish who joined Daniel O’Connell’s Precursor movement, considering the extent of cross-cultural misunderstanding.
