In the period prior to the Famine, Ulster's Protestant community faced major change - social, political and economical. The collapse of the linen industry, the campaigns of Daniel O' Connell and the seemingly unsympathetic London governments presented major challenges for Ulster's majority religious grouping. This book explores how this community, at all social levels, reacted to the changes that were occurring and which were considered detrimental to its position of dominance in society. This reaction manifested itself in a number of ways, one of the most important, being the Orange Order, and it is through the medium of this associational body that the response of Protestant Ulster is measured throughout this work.
