For Weston and Loftus, however, the cathedral represented a superior English ecclesiastical institution which could, indeed should, be harnessed to enforce reform within English Ireland after the manner of the Church of England. 50 This alliance between Sidney’s critics within and outside of his administration was certainly uneasy. But as on previous occasions, in the 1530s and 1540s, it found unexpected support through the intervention of one of the most significant forces in Irish politics: the house of Ormond.

But, even more importantly, Sidney had clear and very different views on the manner in which an Irish university should be founded. For him, the university was best established neither by the dissolution of a cathedral, nor by private endowment, but by means of statute, which he envisaged was to originate in a motion arising voluntarily in the Irish House of Commons that such a bill might be drafted and made law. 24 Propaganda, diocesan reorganization, clerical reform, the refurbishment of churches and the establishment of a university can now all be seen not as a set of separate initiatives but as elements of a coherent reformation strategy.
