When did the Ulster Protestants abandon the Irish Republican movement? I read many Ulster Presbyterians were leaders of 1798 rebellion?

Protestants were champions of Irish Independence what changed during  the 19th century when they became more and more Loyal to Britain or Unionists/Loyalists. I know Presbyterians were also penalised by the established Protesant Church of Ireland (Anglicans) like the Irish Roman Catholics. Did the English buy they're favour.

    Recent historiography has confronted the ugly theme of intimidation and terror inflicted upon the minority, which certainly existed in some areas; but loyalism seems to have been at issue more than sectarianism.

    Considering how ridiculously silly and moronic your repeated questions are, I find it very difficult to believe that you've ever read anything of substance on this subject. As you've been told many times - stop looking for simple answers to complex problems. And stop spamming this idiotic blather that has no bearing on anything. Your generalizations are insensible and won't lead to anything insightful or enlightening. Read some real books and stop pestering everyone with your asinine obsession. You're not Irish. You never will be. Your take on things is wholly incorrect and counts for nothing. Enough is enough.

    It was a gradual process really in which both sides became dismayed by repeated badly-thought-out home rule legislation in the UK parliament. The arguments polarised and caused very bad feeling. Protestants in the South became assimilated and lost their accents too.  The whole of Ireland could have gained a peaceful independence that way. Instead the UK's enemies pored petrol on the fire leading to civil war and secession.

      So English bought the favour of the Presbyterians in Ulster after United irishmen were defeated after 1798 rebellion.
