Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This is an historical study of post-famine agricultural
change in a parish in County Meath, documenting a shift from traditional subsistence
farming to commercial cattle grazing. Depopulation of the region due to the famine opened
up land for ranching, which replaced farming as the primary economic activity. In the
1900s, an anti-grazing movement that tried to restore the traditional farming economy met
with little success. A chapter is devoted to the successful business of one rancher,
representing this new entrepreneurial class.
