Review:

An excellent work, written with flair. --Marianne Elliott, Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool

A jarring corrective to generations of scholars and pundits wedded to the notion that 'sectarianism' is at the heart of understanding social, cultural, and political Ulster. --Mark McGowan, St Michael's College, University of Toronto

Synopsis:

In the late eighteenth century, an influx of Protestant settlers to the mainly Catholic parish of Forkhill on the Ulster borderlands provoked clashes between natives and newcomers. None was more horrific than the brutal attack on a Protestant family in the winter of 1791. The conflict was immediately cast in sectarian terms, framing the understanding of more than 200 years of ill-will. But was it a misdiagnosis? "Forkhill Protestants and Forkhill Catholics" explores the social history of the parish between 1787 and 1858, beginning with a re-examination of the infamous Forkhill outrage. In a wide-ranging analysis, Kyla Madden demonstrates that there was a greater degree of cooperation and exchange between Catholics and Protestants than the historical record has acknowledged. Ultimately, Madden contends that if some of our widely held assumptions about the patterns of Irish history dissolve under scrutiny at the local level, they should be more cautiously applied on a larger scale.
