In the Wake of the Great Rebellion

Manchester University Press

This chapter describes the movement during 1801–1804. Despite the lull in active resistance brought about by the cessation of hostilities between Britain and France in 1802 much of Ulster continued to be disturbed partially by what the authorities typically referred to as riots. These affrays took the form of faction fights at fairs and markets between parties of Orangemen and groups that were commonly described as Freemasons. Contemporaries differed in their assessment of the causes of these fights and further disagreed over the question of the social, political and religious composition of the Masons. These so-called riots were particularly frequent in the Ahoghill area of west-central Antrim in the second half of 1802, where they were most often described as conflicts between yeomen and United Irishmen.
