The forty years which immediately preceded the breaking out of the Rebellion of 1641 were the most peaceful and prosperous which Ireland had seen for centuries. The industrial progress of the island during this period was remarkable. For the first time in her history Ireland paid her way. But the strings of the Irish harp were not to be played for long. The growing prosperity of Ireland and the wealth of the Irish people was shattered in a moment. The rebellion broke out on the 22nd of October 1641, and the rest is history.
