Collusion & Discovery in C18th Co. Kildare Lecture, Monday 25 October – Kill Local History Group

I had a very enjoyable Bank Holiday Monday evening speaking to the Kill Local History Group about collusion and discovery in C18th Co. Kildare. The paper focused on the Lattin family from Morristown Lattin who, despite the Penal Laws, purchased various properties in Kildare and Dublin in collusion with Protestant relatives. I also spoke about the various legal strategies they employed in order to avoid their purchases bieng discovered by a ‘Protestant discoverer’.
