APPENDICES

APPENDIX I
CHRONOLOGICAL TABLE OF THE MAIN EVENTS IN THE EARLY YEARS OF THE MOVEMENT (UP TO 1904)

[As the early accounts of these years do not pretend to include all the details and as in some cases they contradict each other when they do, it has seemed advisable to add here a plain, chronological list of events, in so far as I have been able to collect them. There is obviously no place for all these details in Chapter 3, but students of the movement may find, as I have often done, that a complete table of dates is essential for elucidation of the events of the early years. The source I have used is given in each case in the right hand margin, in the abbreviated form shown on p. xvii and some of the other source-books which also refer, or appear to be referring, to the same episode, are mentioned in similar abbreviated form, in the footnotes. I have carried this time-table up to the summer of 1904 when the negotiations for the Abbey Theatre began. After that date the records are generally more detailed or at least more accessible, the ultimate source being the files of the Abbey Theatre programmes, and the history of the company is more straightforward. This is not intended in any way as a substitute for the clear accounts given by Mr. A. E. Malone ( The Irish Drama) or for the invaluable lists of plays and authors in the Appendices to that work. It is simply an amplification of my own account of the main events of the early years of the company.]1
