Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This study examines how the smaller subsistence farmers of
western Ireland reproduced themselves and their particular economic and social system far
more efficiently than the commercialized farms in the eastern part of the country. Despite
their greater poverty, western farmers were more flexible in life choices, particularly
regarding marriage and migration. Marriage rates characteristic of most of peasant Ireland
in the mid-nineteenth century was still true for western farmers in 1926.
