      Catholic emancipation was the reducing of catholic power by the English and the rebellion occurred because they didn't fully gain all rights. Wolfe tone was one of the delegates that went to London to get the penal laws removed ( to try to stop Catholic emancipation) but he wasn't happy that Catholics couldn't have powerful roles in society after the majority of the penal laws were abolished and this kinda of sparked the rebellion
