    DescriptionThis book is a Short Study of how the plantation of Ulster impacted on the Gaelic Irish lordship of Tir Chonaill, transforming it within the century after the year 1610, from a powerful autonomous lordship, with a warlike population, into a quiet and well-settled territory, albeit with a still largely unplanted and Gaelic western seaboard in 1710. County Donegal was to see the building of the most successfully planted area of the entire official Ulster plantation. The settlers in the county were led by the Lowland Scots, mostly from Ayrshire. This study analyzes how the Donegal plantation grew and consolidated itself throughout the seventeenth century, helped in large measure by the manner in which the Gaelic Irish population of Donegal became isolated in the west of the county, where it had a development which was almost separate and distinct from the Gaelic Irish in the rest of the province. The importance of the exiled Gaelic nobility of Tir Chonaill, in Spain, Rome and Spanish Flanders, throughout the seventeenth century, is also discussed as is the great flourishing of Gaelic scholarship in Donegal and amongst the Donegal Franciscans at Louvain in the first decades after the plantation.
