The Scots In Early Stuart Ireland

Union and separation in two kingdoms

First Edition

edited by Simon Egan and David Edwards

Published by Manchester University Press

Studies in Early Modern Irish History MUP

  • Provides a detailed exploration of how between 1603 and 1660 Scottish colonial settlement in Ireland and Irish political and religious intervention in Scotland cut across Stuart state-building within the British Isles
  • Reveals the abiding strategic importance of Ulster, north Connacht and western Scotland in the wider Stuart state, as an alternative cultural and political sphere to the English-dominated regions further south
  • Shows that 'Scotticisation' and 'Hibernicisation', though neglected previously, were powerful transformative forces that placed limits on the extent of 'Anglicisation' in the Stuart state during the period
  • Demonstrates how Scottish-Irish connections served to funnel Catholic as well as Protestant radicalism across the North Channel and to unhinge the established church, with major consequences across all three kingdoms by the later 1630s
