Plantations in Ulster, 1600-41: new edition launched

The Ulster Historical Foundation (UHF) has published an updated and expanded edition of Planations in Ulster, R J Hunter's meticulous examination of documents relating to Ulster in the early 1600s first published in 1975.

The new edition was launched yesterday at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) and is presented in the form of a bound book and includes colour prints and additional documents. It costs only one penny sterling (plus post and packing charges) and is available from the online BooksIreland store.

If the Ulster Plantation and 17th-century Ireland is of interest to your research, you should also check out the UHF's Plantation of Ulster Collection which offers some of the most influential writings on the period and provides comprehensive insights into this period in Irish history. The collection is currently on sale for the special price of £64.99 (RRP £109.08).
