From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Renunciation Act, passed by the British Parliament on April 17, 1783, acknowledged the exclusive right of the Parliament of Ireland to legislate for Ireland. The Act also acknowledged the exclusive jurisdiction in Ireland of the Irish Courts. The Act gave practical effect to the series of legislative changes already passed by the Parliament of Ireland and the British Parliament, most notably the amendment of Poyning's Law and the repeal of the Declaratory Act 1720.
