This illustrates the extent of toleration pennitted under the penal laws. There is also considerable evidence that at a local level, relations between Catholic and Protestant neighbours could be good. Mixed marriages still occurred in Wexford for example (Foster, 1988: 154), and people in Loughinisland shared a church for a time (Rafferty, 1994: 68).

Ulster's Presbyterians refused to sign the oath, in most part because of an objection at being forced to do so, and in 1653 they were banished from the island. By the following year, however, Cromwell's son and his father's Lord Deputy, cancelled the banishment scheme and even granted some Presbyterian ministers a state stipend. He was less affected than his father by pique at the Presbyterians' show of independence. Within a few years, most Presbyterian ministers had accepted the stipend, despite their preference for independence: division within Protestant ranks was unappealing to the Protectorate and Presbyterians alike, since it appeared that the pro-Catholic Stuarts could well resume kingly authority again.
