A new publication from Ulster Historical Foundation which offers insight into the countless clergy who have served in the Catholic Diocese of Down and Connor from the medieval period through to 1900.

The Clergy of Down and Connor, 1400–1900 is the culmination of years of effort by the late Canon George O’Hanlon and the late Monsignor Ambrose Macaulay, hugely admired church archivists, historians and authors.

This thoroughly researched book offers illuminating insight into the lives of the countless clergy who have served in the Catholic Diocese of Down and Connor from the medieval period through to 1900.

The book highlights the major contribution of the clergy to the Church during pre- Reformation times and the Penal Era, as well as the crucial period of expansion in the nineteenth century. This is a work that will have considerable appeal for those interested in ecclesiastical history in general and specifically in the development of the Catholic Church in County Antrim and in north and east County Down. It will also help genealogists and local historians interested in building up a picture of families associated with the Church in this northern diocese.
Published in December 2020, this beautifully produced full colour hardback book is priced at just £19.99 and is sure to be of interest to anyone interested in the history of the Clergy, not just in the Parish of Down and Connor, but also the history of the Catholic Church in Northern Ireland.
