Volume V: Kildare and Meath published in 1641 Depositions series

The 1641 Depositions are witness testimonies mainly by Protestants, but also by some Catholics, from all social backgrounds, concerning their experiences of the 1641 Irish rebellion.

This latest volume in the series to be published covers testimonies for Kildare and Meath. The depositions and examinations from both of these counties provide graphic evidence of the difficulties confronted by the Old English of the pale in their dealings with a government which was not simply unwilling to trust or defend them, but tempted to provoke them.
