By 1713–1714 tensions along whig and tory party lines in Ireland reached an unprecedented peak. At this time domestically produced publications began to offer overtly partisan commentary on Irish politicians and political affairs. In the run-up to the general election of 1713, printed electoral advice directed at Irish voters appeared for the first time. Pamphlets and broadsides offering opinion on domestic political proceedings continued to appear in print even after parliament convened in 1713.
