The Ulster Plantation in the Counties of Armagh and Cavan 1608-41

R J Hunter

Published for the first time is R.J. Hunter’s MLitt dissertation, a fascinating study of two counties that were an integral part of the Plantation of Ulster.

In his penetrating analysis of the impact of Plantation in Armagh and Cavan, R.J. Hunter demonstrates his mastery of the sources, his eye for detail and his succintness of presentation. Hunter’s command of his subject - in places magisterial - was grounded on a strong chronological foundation, in which each development was located in its proper time and place, a meticulous process which allowed even minor details to gain added meaning as, expertly, they were fitted in to a larger process which allowed even minor details to gain added meaning as, expertly, they were fitted in to a larger sequence.

The depth of understanding that Hunter brings to these and other aspects of plantation society is matched by the depth of the archival research that underpins it.
