My Irish Journal, William Penn includes his sojourns in Cork 1669-70.

Part of University College Cork CELT project.

Penn shows himself to be quite sectarian and dismissive of Catholics in the journal probably reflecting the common English contemporary prejudices f the time. he is also a tough administrator of his father’s estates.
