|Title:||Government, parliament and the constitution: the reinterpretation of Poynings' Law, 1692-1714||Authors:||McGrath, Charles Ivar||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9697||Date:||Nov-2006||Online since:||2019-03-26T13:15:29Z||Abstract:||The history of Poynings’ Law is complex and multifaceted. Much has been written about it, at times with the end result being a recognition that to investigate Poynings’ Law is to venture into a quagmire. At the same time, a number of important works have been published over the years that throw light upon specific periods in the history of that law. Until recently, much of the focus has been on the period stretching from the passage of the law in 1494-5 up to 1641, with some significant excursions into the eighteenth-century history of the law. Two newer studies demonstrate a shift in focus: one a detailed study of the 1640s; the other a broader work on the history of the law from 1660 to 1800. However, at present, gaps still remain in our knowledge of the subject, particularly for the last one hundred and forty years of the law’s existence. This article aims to fill one such gap, by focusing upon the period 1692-1714.||Funding Details:||Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Journal:||Irish Historical Studies||Volume:||35||Issue:||138||Start page:||160||End page:||172||Copyright (published version):||2006 Irish Historical Studies Publications||Keywords:||Poynings’ Law; History of Irish law; Irish parliament; Legislation; Irish constitution||DOI:||10.1017/S0021121400004867||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
