Joyce demonstrates how Irish Protestants coped with the rapid social change at the turn of the 20th century. As Irish independence became imminent with the passage of church and land-related laws and the introduction of Home Rule Bills, some Protestants, fearing isolation as an ethnic minority, made great efforts to participate in the Catholic mainstream society. Crofton and Kernan, ordinary Protestants who have lost the traditional privileges of Protestants, cannot help but look for a survival strategy. In the case of Crofton, he helps campaigns for a nationalist candidate or makes friends with Catholics who work at Dublin Castle. Kernan converted to Catholicism upon marriage, and associates with Catholics in power. Joyce shows Protestants interacting with Catholics, but points out their limitations as well. Crofton and Kernan acknowledge that many Irish patriots were Protestants, but they deliberately do not reveal that those Protestant patriots worked for Irish independence. Whether they converted to Catholicism or not, they share an imperialist identity with the Irish Revivalists. On the other hand, Protestants, like Mr. Purefoy, who have good jobs or are close to the powerful, live independently of social changes.
