Penal laws continued to exclude the Catholic, and to a lesser extent, Protestant dissenter populations from full citizenship. Despite major legal disadvantages, there was a substantial Catholic propertied interest, and a growing ecclesiastical establishment. Presbyterians remained the strongest religious group in Ulster, though now divided between traditional (Old Light) and more liberal (New Light) wings. The Church of Ireland, despite being entangled in the web of public patronage, was not the wholly moribund institution often claimed.
