Summary

The Reverend Thomas Goff (1772-1844) was a landlord and Church of Ireland minister in early 19th-century Ireland. He kept a personal diary for almost 50 years, where he recorded an unfiltered account of his apprehensions and attitudes to matters both quotidian and profound. This book uses the diaries to reconstruct Goff in the context of his times and to explore his politics, his religion, and also his property dealings. The insights gained from his story are used in an attempt to understand the outlook and opinions of the wider Protestant community. He viewed the world through the lens of a sincere and deeply felt faith which he saw as a bastion against both Catholicism and dissenting Protestantism; this belief molded his political viewpoint. As a Loyalist and conservative, he perceived Daniel O'Connell to be a real and credible threat to the very existence of that community. Reverend Thomas Goff and his community had huge power and influence, but they felt embattled and isolated. Consequently, they lacked the vision to formulate the change which might have averted, or at least diminished, the catastrophe which was about to befall Ireland.
