If you try hard enough, you can find a reference to almost anything you want in Ulysses, Joyce didn't discriminate too much. But in terms of some more obvious political and historical references:
One of the major figures in the movement for Irish independence was a guy named Charles Stewart Parnell. He is mentioned in the Lestrygonians episode and Joyce used his characters to be able to discuss him at length when they spot his brother in the pub. Joyce also referred to the assassination of Charles Cavendish and Thomas Burke in the Eumaeus episode.
There are a number of other references, but these are some of the most prominent and most relevant given Joyce's feelings about Ireland.
