These essays explore aspects of the English colony in medieval Ireland and its relations with the Gaelic host society. They deal with both the foundation and expansion of the English lorsdship in the twelfth and early thirteenth centuries, and with the problems and adjustments that accompanied its contraction in the later middle ages. Attention is paid to the government and society of the colony itself, and to the interactions between settler and native.
