Act of Union

'In addition to the general hardships of day to day life in Ireland, the Act of Union in 1801 had abolished all Irish legislation and merged the Kingdom of Ireland and the Kingdom of Great Britain into the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. This essentially made Ireland no better than and English colony'
