From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Banishment Act was an Act of the Parliament of Ireland (citation 9 Will III c.1), one of a series of penal laws passed in 1697 that banished all bishops of the Roman Catholic Church from Ireland to protect the official state church, the Church of Ireland. The long title of the Act is "An Act for banishing all Papists exercising any Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction, and all Regulars of the Popish Clergy out of this Kingdom."
