Chapter Summary

The subject of Irish migration to France in the early modern period may seem rather well-worn in the context of new and opening lines of enquiry regarding population movement as far as Central and Eastern Europe. This survey attempts to provide nuances and fresh insights to complement the oft-told tale of the exploits of those 'Wild Geese' who took flight after the Battle of the Boyne. The analyses which follow are based in large part on doctoral work and some articles on Irish migration to France prior to the reign of James VII and II. Chronology is another area requiring some nuances. 1688, rhetorically represents the familiar three stroke frame of Irish Catholic migration in the seventeenth century, namely, Kinsale and the 'flight' of the Earls , the Cromwellian campaign and its aftermath and the struggle of Kings James and William.

Keywords: Chronology; Cromwellian campaign; France; Irish Catholic Migration; Kinsale
