(Editorial Note:

The publishing of this list is believed to be the first occasion in South of Ireland when the under priveleged Roman Catholics published a list exclusively consisting of Catholics.

From it dates the foundation of a vocal 'middle class' which since 1708 has been absent from Irish politics. The signatories appear to give a fairly complete list of the Catholic Gentry and Merct. classes in Corke and its immediate environs and had considerable courage not only by risking the wrath of a dangerous Secret Society but in forcing themselves to the notice of the Ascendancy as an organized body.) Vol. 6, page 2384.
