Abstract
This article is about the history of the Irish co-operative movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, led by founder and social reformer Horace Curzon Plunkett (1854-1932). For Plunkett, the purpose of the co-operative movement was to encourage self-help and joint enterprise, affecting both economic and social life. The author examines in particular the relationship between social classes, the role of women in the movement, and the relationship between the co-operative movement and the state.
