A New History of Ireland

This chapter describes Edward VI's reign in Ireland, which began a period of alternation between conciliation and coercion that was to become a settled pattern of her relationship with England for a long time. The Tudor attempt to settle Ireland proceeded uneasily. The state still had hope of attaining its end by conciliation, but the military resources of the deputies were steadily increased, and, although the power of the administration was as yet quite inadequate for a military conquest, the use of force to secure short-term objectives was becoming more and more attractive. The parliament that Sidney summoned in January 1569 was used to promote the policy of conquest. Still representative only of that part of the island where English control or influence were manifest, much of the increase being made up, to match the current domination of the Irish administration by Englishmen, by English newcomers.
