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 John McKenna - A Beleaguered Station: the Memoir of Head Constable John McKenna, 1891-1921 Ulster Historical Foundation John McKenna - A Beleaguered Station: the Memoir of Head Constable John McKenna, 1891-1921

This memoir offers a unique insight into troubled times in Northern Ireland in the period leading up to partition. Prompted by a sectarian attack on pilgrims processing to a boat in Larne which would take them to the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin, a retired RIC Head Constable looks back on his 31 years service. For McKenna the attack in the summer of 1932 represents the culmination of years of injustice perpetrated by a unionist hierarchy within the pre-partition RIC in Ulster and in post-partition northern society in general. He believed the RIC hierarchy's supine attitude towards Ulster loyalism was characterised, around the time of partition, by the 'B' Specials being given an apparently free hand in Co. Tyrone - committing injustices without fear of being brought to account. The memoir provides a contrast between relatively idyllic service in Galway and the harshness of northern political realities. This is reinforced by the personal happiness McKenna enjoyed in the west where he met his wife, contrasted with the tragedy of the untimely deaths of three of his young children while serving in Ulster. A man of his time, Head Constable McKenna's voice deserves to be heard today and his story is relevant to understanding Northern Ireland's political and policing problems in the present. Cross-community support for a local police force was lacking in 1920-21 and the events in the memoir point up how essential consensus is in any divided society, past or present.
