Ireland in Crisis

Coleman A. Dennehy

Manchester University Press

Many historians assume that, having played a pivotal role in the fall of the earl of Strafford, the Irish Parliament came to an end in 1641, before the outbreak of rebellion. In this chapter Coleman Dennehy reminds us that Parliament continued to meet, however infrequently, until 1648 and technically it was only dissolved on the execution of Charles I in January 1649. The chapter investigates attendance in the houses and the business conducted there, including passing legislation and hearing petitions. It also considers why an apparently defunct institution was kept on life support by Ormond and the Dublin administration, concluding that part of the reason was to ratify a peace treaty with the confederates that never took effect.
