    Excerpt from Travels in Ireland in the Year 1822: With Reflections on the Best Means of Improving Its Condition

    This form of government, nearly patriarchal, there being, as it were, a common father to the various families composing the nation, continued, with little interruption, down to the introduction of Christianity; and to a people so constituted, the transition from the worship of Baal to that of the living God was easy and certain. The laws regarding property, moreover, tended considerably to cherish the principles of peace and reciprocal justice among them; for the rule of inheritance according to the Brehon law, an unwritten code resembling the old common law of England, gave to each of the sons an equal parti cipation in the father's estate; and this extended in full right of claim to all the next of kin; but such an arrange ment could be applicable only to a confined population. A remarkable exception to the law of inheritance was observed in the election of their kings, the succession being transferred out of the direct descent in case of immoral character, illegitimate birth, or bodily defect.
