Why was England so interested in conquering Ireland?

As for the Wolfe Tones, I find it funny that Wolfe Tone himself was a Protestant who belonged to the heretical "Church of Ireland."  Goes to show that Irish republicanism and the Irish independence movement are not necessarily identical with "political Catholicism" in Ireland.  Oh, would that the Stuarts still reigned as Catholic Kings of free and independent Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland (and, heck, maybe even France -- the absolutist Bourbons started out Huguenot and weren't all that great) in personal union!
