This article explores Church of Ireland sermons in the eighteenth century. Anglican sermons provide insights on the changing views of Irish Catholics, in particular how and why their conversion should be pursued. Sermons also offered solutions to the problems created by Catholicism and were used to fund and raise the profile of particular conversion schemes, and to recruit the support of the influential and wealthy.
