    Abstract

    The purpose of this paper is to examine the pattern of landholding in Monaghan as it is reflected in the 1591 and 1606 inquisitions, to focus especially on the function of balybetagh in the Gaelic landholding system and to fit the resulting pattern of sept lands into the general framework of landownership as it operated in Gaelic Ireland in the late sixteenth century.
