9781107440296: Descendancy: Irish Protestant Histories since 1795

This book examines Protestant loss of power and self-confidence in Ireland since 1795. David Fitzpatrick charts the declining power and influence of the Protestant community in Ireland and the strategies adopted in the face of this decline, presenting rich personal testimony that illustrates how individuals experienced and perceived 'descendancy'. Focusing on the attitudes and strategies adopted by the eventual losers rather than victors, he addresses contentious issues in Irish history through an analysis of the appeal of the Orange Order, the Ulster Covenant of 1912, and 'ethnic cleansing' in the Irish Revolution. Avoiding both apologetics and sentimentality when probing the psychology of those undergoing 'descendancy', the book examines the social and political ramifications of religious affiliation and belief as practised in fraternities, church congregations and isolated sub-communities.

Book Description:

This is a compelling account of Protestant loss of power and self-confidence in Ireland since 1795. David Fitzpatrick examines the social and political ramifications of religious affiliation and belief as practised in fraternities, church congregations, and isolated sub-communities and illustrates how individuals experienced and perceived 'descendancy'.

About the Author:

David Fitzpatrick is Professor of Modern History at Trinity College, Dublin and a Member of the Royal Irish Academy. He graduated from the universities of Melbourne and Cambridge, which he revisited in 2013 as Parnell Fellow in Irish Studies at Magdalene College. He is an acknowledged pioneer in diverse aspects of modern Irish history, including the Irish revolutionary experience as revealed in local sources, the transformative impact of the Great War, the underlying affinities between Ireland's Protestant and Catholic communities, the analysis of personal testimony to illuminate migration, the enduring appeal and influence of the Orange Order, and the use of historical evidence to reinterpret the work of Irish writers such as Yeats, Synge, and MacNeice. His works include Politics and Irish Life: Provincial Experience of War and Revolution (1977), Irish Emigration, 1801-1921 (1984), Oceans of Consolation: Personal Accounts of Irish Migration to Colonial Australia (1994), The Two Irelands, 1912-1939 (1998), Harry Boland's Irish Revolution (2003) and 'Solitary and Wild': Frederick MacNeice and the Salvation of Ireland (2012). His most recent edited volume is Terror in Ireland, 1916-1923 (2012), produced by the Trinity History Workshop, which he founded in 1986.
