  • May 9Napoleon sets off for Toulon, and sails aboard Vice-Admiral Brueys's flagship L'Orient; his squadron is part of a larger fleet of over 300 vessels, carrying almost 37,000 troops.[60]
  • May 23 – Irish republicans and nationalists, known as the Society of United Irishmen, launch a rebellion against British rule, in expectation of greater support from France, which only sends 1,100 men.

The rebellion rages sporadically, but is defeated by the British by October.
