Towns were important because they were the main protestant areas. The town was where they had they protestant churches, the main market where people could trade and it would have been where the guards were so they could enforce the common law.

When was protestants introduced in Ireland?

The English first arrived in 1169 (as Normans) but they were Christian, not Protestants. The Protestant Faith was established Martin Luther when he PROTESTED against the abuses in the Catholic Church. Following the English reformation under Henry VIII there was a desire to spread the Protestant faith to Ireland. This was done through a series of Plantations - Laois and Offaly were the first in 1556. However, the most successful plantation of Ireland was the 3rd Plantation - the Plantation of Ulster (1606). It is the legacy of this plantation which is largely responsible for the conflict between Ulster and the rest of Ireland, and the conflict within Ulster.
