Like their counterparts in the North American colonies, the Irish questioned the validity of the Navigation Acts imposed at the end of the Seven Years' War. The debates in the Irish Parliament recorded in these volumes offer an interesting perspective on the debates in North America. In the end Ireland accepted the acts, a factor in its growing resentment of Great Britain. English Short-Title Catalogue T225382.
