The Invention of the White Race Prelude to the Irish Famine: Demographics There are no reliable population figures for Ireland before 1841, however estimates (often based on Hearth Money Returns) have been carried as far back as 1700. These figures show that Ireland's population rose slowly from around 3 million in 1700 until the last half of the 18th century when it had reached 4 million. It then entered a rapid period of increase (around 1.6% per annum) which appears to have slowed to 0.6% by 1830. By 1841, the population had reached 8.2 million (according to the census, but the actual figure may be nearer 8.5 million). The population would probably have levelled off at a value of 9 million had it not been for the famine that began in 1845. Emigration has been a feature of Irish history more than almost any other country in the world. Between 1815 and 1845, 1.5 million Irish emigrated, mainly to Britain (c0.5 million) and to north America (c1 million). > Next > The Famine 1: Potato Blight >

The sociological description of Ireland in Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal” Multitext - William Carleton Novelist. He was born 4 March 1794, in Prillisk, near Clogher in Co. Tyrone.

Carleton offered to help Robert Peel to combat Emancipation and Catholicism in Ireland and to prove that O’Connell, the Catholic Association, and the priests were involved in agrarian crime. His Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry is based on his knowledge of the character and folklore of the people he grew up with or met on his travels. Although Carleton was prolific and successful, he was always short of money because of his family expenses and his heavy drinking. Autobiography, Biography & Studies. Tomás O’Riordan

Ulster-Scots History Migration back and forth across the narrow North Channel between Scotland and Ireland, which at its narrowest point (between Torr Head and the Mull of Kintyre) is only 13 miles apart, has been ongoing from time immemorial, Scotland owing its very name to Roman times and the settlement of Irish-speaking gaels in Argyle who were known as Scotti. County Antrim and County Down were essentially the majority of the Anglo-Norman Earldom of Ulster, founded by Hugh de Lacy in 1205. Walter de Burgh succeeded de Lacy and became the first Earl of Ulster in 1264. Walter was succeeded by his eldest son, Richard Og de Burgh “The Red Earl”. Richard de Burgh’s daughter Elizabeth became the second wife of King Robert the Bruce in 1302. Bruce’s father in law, the Red Earl, was the most powerful Earl in Ireland and he sided with the English King Edward I in the wars which eventually led to the Battle of Bannockburn in June 1314.

The Geraldines: The House of Desmond and the House of Kildare Taken from A History of Ireland by Eleanor Hull THE history of the fifteenth century was in England largely occupied by the savage dynastic struggles known as the Wars of the Roses. In Ireland it was a century in which similar struggles were carried on by the three great families of the Ormondes, Kildares, and Desmonds, whose efforts for power kept Ireland in a like state of turmoil. One cause which strengthened the Yorkist claims in Ireland was the sending over of Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York, the head of the White Rose party, as Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland in 1449. The hopes of the Duke of York were cut short at the disastrous battle of Wakefield in 1460. It was in the last year of Richard Plantagenet's life that the Irish Parliament, sitting under his presidency, made an effort to enlarge its independent powers. Poynings' Law had also another purpose; it was intended to prevent any further efforts of the Irish nobility to influence the course of events in England.
