This wonderfully researched local history is based on the experiences of a mid-nineteenth century Landlord-tenant clearance from Rathcore in Co. Meath, Republic of Ireland. The study recalls and examines the main circumstances which lead up to the evictions there; these include, a mass tenant grievance against land tenure uncertainty, the changing nature of Irish farming after the Great famine years and the landlord-tenant relationship in Rathcore.  The book recalls and tracks the family names and the socio-economic conditions and living standards of each tenant family living in Rathcore prior to those evictions. A fascinating socio-economic history of agriculture in Meath and Leinster is presented for the period. And an in-depth look at the landlord and tenant relationship is recollected in Rathcore. This relationship offers up a fascinating account of the main circumstances which lead up to the evictions in Rathcore in January 1865. The book also offers up a host of very interesting primary source material one will spend hours analysing and investigating. (This book is on SALE NOW: GOOGLE play store).
