-largest group were the Protestant, the Presbyterian and the Anglo-Irish
-pushed out cause they feared for their prospects for the future, and bad eco.
conditions cause of changes to the rural eco. like the decline of the linen
hand loom industry and less demand for hand woven fabrics, starting in 1820s,
pressures against the Protestants, cause till then the Catholics had no
legal rights, couldnt sit in juries, but then concessions granted to the Catholic
majority by Brit gov’t, now the Protestant minority felt vulnerable
-pulled by land, free or reasonably cheap, to set up a family farm was the goal of
the majority, sometimes didnt have enough money/resources to set up
the farm so income made up by occupation pluralism, or flexibility in
