The history of Prebyterianism in Dublin involves complex theology and politics and intriguing personalities, but is little understood in contemporary Ireland. In 2013 the Presbyterian Church in Ireland celebrated the 400th anniversary of the arrival in Ireland of the Scottish-born and -educated Edward Brice, acknowledged at the first Presbyterian minister to have a congregation in Ireland, at Ballycarry, County Antrim, from 1613. Thereafter for some time the Scottish church provided the first ministers for the rapidly increasing numbers of Scots settlers in Ulster in the last quarter of the seventeeth and first quarter of the eighteenth centuries, beginning the long association between Irish and Scottish Presbyterianism.
