Podcast: the Ulster Plantation

The city of Derry, or Londonderry, due to the involvement of the Companies of London, planned and built during the Ulster Plantation.

We discuss:

  • The Origins of the plantation in the Nine Years War and the ‘Flight of the Earls’
  • The plans and thinking behind the plantation
  • Its long-term impact and subsequent Protestant settlement in Ulster.
