36 20 November was set as the deadline for Catholic clergy to quit the kingdom. 37 This proclamation was the ﬁrst public indication of how the Irish government intended to deal with the Popish Plot. When the English parliament met in London on 21 October, genuine fears about the existence of a plot were evident in its continual preoccupation with investigating it. But in Ireland, the lack of a parliament meant there was no institutional framework within which to coherently express the concerns of the Protestant elite.
First, the inability to implement such policies as were deemed appropriate ensured a degree of continual uncertainty about Irish affairs. Second, this reality ensured that the various viceroys of the period would be continually tasked with attempting to overhaul the branches of the administration that overlay and sought to manage the realities of Restoration Ireland. The viceroyalty of Sir Arthur Capel, earl of Essex, exempliﬁed this. From a royalist background in Hertfordshire, Essex is best known for the dubious circumstances in which he met his death in the Tower of London in 1683.
The contours of both the Catholic and Protestant communities of Restoration Ireland were shaped by factors common to both. Alongside the obvious distinctions of political and religious principle, class, ethnicity, afﬁnity, familial links, personal history (especially with regards to the 1640s), residence, and regional origin all had a part in elaborating the complexities of confessional identity. Yet other common factors could be discerned. Just as the diversity of Protestant Ireland could be concealed beneath the carapace of common fears, so too could the diversity of Irish Catholic identity be concealed by a common rhetoric of dispossession and injustice articulated by most strands of Irish Catholic opinion.
