The Statute of Kilkenny had many provisions to separate the English from the Irish. It was against the law for the English in Ireland to:

Marry an Irish person

Adopt an Irish child

Use an Irish name

Wear Irish clothes

Speak the Irish language

Play Irish music

Listen to Irish story-tellers

Play Irish games, especially Hurley

Let an Irish person join an English religious house

Appoint any Irish clergyman to any church in the English settlement

Ride a horse in Irish style, that is, without a saddle.

Because of the weak government, they were not able to make people obey the new laws, and the Anglo-Irish ignored them.
Although they were not ultimately successful, the Statute of Kilkenny foreshadowed the continuously troubled relationship
