Ulster Historical Foundation Philip S. Robinson - The Plantation of Ulster: British Settlement in an Irish Landscape, 1600-1670 Ulster Historical Foundation Philip S. Robinson - The Plantation of Ulster: British Settlement in an Irish Landscape, 1600-1670

During the reign of James I, an official scheme was drawn up for the 'plantation' of designated areas in west Ulster. However, the actual area settled by the new colonists was much more extensive. With them came innovation. A radical transformation of the landscape began. The spread of a market-based rural economy resulted in a quite spectacular growth in urbanisation. Permanent dwellings of a more sophisticated construction became the norm in many areas, and around the towns new field patterns emerged. The spread of hedged enclosures heralded innovations in agricultural methods, tools, livestock, and systems of land tenure. In a more abstract sense, the settlers also brought with them a new language, new surnames, new religion and of course a change in political and historical allegiances. This account of the plantation landscape shows how colonisation on the ground was not as much influenced either by the London Government or by the new landowners as has often been assumed. Environmental factors proved more important than governmental controls in shaping the emerging settlement pattern. The author also demonstrates how seeds of bitterness were quickly sown between the Protestant settlers and the Catholic natives whom they had displaced, with consequences that last to this day.

Ulster Historical Foundation W.A. Maguire - Captain Cohonny: Constantine Maguire of Tempo (Belfast Society publication series) Ulster Historical Foundation W.A. Maguire - Captain Cohonny: Constantine Maguire of Tempo (Belfast Society publication series)

The Maguires of Tempo, whose substantial estate dated from the Ulster Plantation in 1610, were the only gaelic family in Fermanagh to survive the upheavals of the next two centuries with their property more or less intact. By the time Constantine Maguire - the subject of this book - inherited in 1800, however, only a fraction remained. The extraordinary story of this resourceful, not to say ruthless, man's struggle to retain his social standing - in the course of which he married a famous courtesan and then fell in love with a mistress of his own (who lived with him for the seven years he chose to stay in the debtors' prison in Dublin) - reads like a novel of the period. His brutal murder in Tipperary in 1834 was a suitably gothic finishing touch to a rackety career. At a more serious level, the tale of Captain Cohonny' throws useful light on some obscure aspects of life and death in early nineteenth century Ireland.

Ulster Historical Foundation Eamon Phoenix - Feis Na Ngleann: Gaelic Culture in Antrim Glens Ulster Historical Foundation Eamon Phoenix - Feis Na Ngleann: Gaelic Culture in Antrim Glens

The Glens of Antrim formed one of the last Irish-speaking areas of Ulster until the early 1900s. Until the opening of the Antrim coast road in the 1850s Irish was universally spoken in the Glens and on Rathlin. The turn of the nineteenth century saw the Gaelic Revival which in the north of Ireland involved both Unionists and Nationalists in an effort to preserve Irish as a spoken language. It was against this background of cultural renaissance that Feis na nGleann ('The Glens Feis') was founded in 1904 as the first Gaelic cultural festival in east Ulster. That inaugural Feis harnessed the talents of the Glens folk and a group of leading 'Big House' figures in the locality, among them Miss Rose Young of Galgorm Castle - a member of a leading Ballymena Unionist dynasty - Miss Ada McNeill of Cushendun and Miss Margaret Dobbs. Others included Sir Roger Casement, then a recent convert to Irish nationalism, Eoin MacNeill, Glensman and language revivalist, Francis Joseph Bigger, lawyer and antiquarian, John 'Benmore' Clarke and Joseph Campbell, the Belfast poet. This book traces the origins of Feis na nGleann in that 'crease in time' between Parnell and the 1916 Rising. In a series of scholarly chapters, experts profile the historic founders of the Feis and record the history of Irish in the district. There are special sections on the traditional arts and crafts fostered by the Feis, the once famous Glens toy-making industry, the role of hurling and the rich literary legacy of the Feiseanna. The book is lavishly illustrated with unique contemporary photographs. The result is attractive and readable volume which will appeal to all those interested in the history and culture of the Glens and the fortunes of the Irish language in the north of Ireland.

Ulster Historical Foundation M. Perceval-Maxwell - The Scottish Migration to Ulster in the Reign of James I (Ulster-Scottish Historical) Ulster Historical Foundation M. Perceval-Maxwell - The Scottish Migration to Ulster in the Reign of James I (Ulster-Scottish Historical)

The Scottish Migration To Ulster In The Reign Of James I by M. Perceval-Maxwell was first published in 1973, yet it continues to be one of the most significant works of scholarship on the 'plantation' of Ulster. This book describes in detail the initial establishment of settlement in Ireland's northern province over a comparitively short space of time, that is from 1603 to 1625. Dr Perceval-Maxwell examines the society that produced the Scottish settlers, describes the conditions that they encountered when they arrived in Ireland, and explains what effect the Scottish migration had in both Ireland and Scotland. Short biographies of the principal planters are included and also maps, showing patterns of settlement. This new edition includes an introduction written by Dr Perceval-Maxwell which examines the most recent research on this period and shows that most of this scholarship has supplemented rather than challenged his original work

Ulster Historical Foundation Myrtle Hill - The Time of the End - Millenarian Beliefs in Ulster Ulster Historical Foundation Myrtle Hill - The Time of the End - Millenarian Beliefs in Ulster

This work looks at the particular way in which Ulster society has been affected by millennial ideas. Though not exclusive to Protestantism, it was this branch of the Christian faith that first tied the end of the century to apocalyptic warnings and prophecies of the Second Coming. Myrtle Hill takes us through what is sometimes dismissed as a 'lunatic fringe' to reveal instead vibrant 18th and 19th century world views.
