The evolution of the duck decoy in Ireland can be traced from its origin in the Low Countries, via its introduction to England to its arrival in Ireland in the late seventeenth century. The history, construction and workings of the decoy are revealed with reference to a number of decoys created in Ireland during the Restoration and its focus is on the creation of a decoy by the Dutchman Martin Jansen van Heyninge at the Portmore estate, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland. This is perhaps the most thoroughly documented late seventeenth-century decoy in the British Isles.
