'Contributes much to our understanding of the politics of religion in sixteenth-century Ireland …. Richly detailed and well-researched, this account of the mechanics of reform draws out carefully the very real possibilities that existed for an Irish (Gaelic and Hiberno-Norman) break with Rome and the circumstances that led to its rejection and resistance,’ Brendan Kane, Field Day Review.

‘This book is an important addition to Irish reformation studies. Given the proximity of the diocese of Meath to the Dublin seat of English administration in Ireland, it seemed strange that the Tudor reformation failed to take root there. Dr Scott’s scholarly, documented analysis has provided thought-provoking answers’, C. F. McGleenon, Seanchas Ard Mhacha.
