Irish Catholic Identities

Raymond Gillespie

Manchester University Press

Both within plantation Ulster and in other regions of the north of Ireland some of the major landowners, Abercorn, Castlehaven and the earl of Antrim, were in fact Catholics. So far as Castlehaven was concerned this adherence would eventually have political implications since he supported the Confederacy in the 1640s. Nevertheless despite the commonalities of religious adhesion distinct types of Catholicism did emerge in plantation and northern Catholicism. These divergences are examined by using the Catholicism of the Gaelic Irish as a context from which comparisons can be made. This enables us to understand something of the range of Catholic identities, among both settlers and natives that emerged as part of the plantation process.
