This chapter argues that the counter-revolutionary role of the Irish Yeomanry in 1798 cannot be fully understood by a top-down approach which concentrates on governmental and military policy. Rather the yeomanry was essentially shaped by local dynamics in the years before the outbeak of rebellion in 1798.
