This chapter examinespatterns of loyal associationalism in Ulster in the later eighteenth century. Included in its remit are voluntary military organisations (principally the Irish Volunteers and Yeomanry), town and city corporations, Orange societies and political clubs. By tracing loyal associationalism over time it emerges that the early 1790s witnessed the emergence of more militant forms of loyalism shaped more by memories of seventeenth-century Irish Protestantism than by Enlightenment-inspired sociability.
