    A.D. 1690 James II, a Catholic, fled to Ireland and was pursued by King William of Orange who had been invited to take over his throne. William of Orange, with a 35,000 man army defeated King James' 23,000 Irish soldiers at the Battle of the Boyne.

    A.D. 1697-1703 Penal Laws were imposed upon the Irish as a consequence of the triumph of the Williamites in 1690-1691. Having already suffered the loss of their lands and leaders, the Catholich Irish were unable to resist the legislation. At first they resricted the number of clergy allowed in the country but were expanded to prohibit education of children, ownership and inheritance of property and farm animals, admission to the professions, the ability to trade and employ, to bear arms and, finally to vote. (The Story of the Irish Race, 458/ The Macmillan Atlas of Irish History, 76).

    A.D. 1739 On the last day of 1739, Ireland awoke to find itself in the grip of what was in effect a small ice age. Rivers froze, mills seized up, and houses could not be heated above freezing point. Many were enchanted by the novelty of it all. Carnivals, dances, and sheep-roastings were held on the ice. But the euphoria proved fleeting. In its wake came an almost biblical ordeal by drought, flood, fire, famine and plague, that has few parallels in the recorded history of the island.
