The support of Irish Protestants for the restoration of the monarchy followed naturally on their earlier preference for a strong Protectorate over subjection to either the English parliament or the army. New and Old Protestants now united to protect the Cromwellian land settlement, ensuring that only a minority of Catholic proprietors regained their estates. The accompanying religious settlement left a large body of Protestant dissenters outside the restored Church of Ireland. Rising external demand, combined with immigration, encouraged rapid economic growth with rising exports of beef, butter, and wool; the beginnings of linen manufacture, and the expansion of Dublin and other urban centres.
