Here the issue of cultural Catholicism is examined for late medieval Ireland c. 1200-c1550, by way of devotional cults and practices. Such evidence as survives allows us to draw some conclusions about the distinctive religious practices among the two major groups living in Ireland at that time: the Gaelic Irish and the Anglo-Norman Irish. Despite different devotional tendencies in each community it is clear that facile distinctions based on ethic group must be avoided in order to judge Irish Catholicism within the broader context of European Catholicism as a whole. The essay also examines the issue of how different the idea of identity was for the average of the Anglo-Irish inhabitant of the Pale, from that of English visitors, or indeed of the ‘mere’ Irish within the Pale and those who lived beyond it.
