Overview

In this study the rich seam of information provided by the Chief Secretary's Office Registered Papers and the Kilkenny newspapers for the years 1879-91 is used to relate how this rural parish embraced the ideas and organisational principles of a succession of agrarian/political movements. The focus is removed from prominent national leaders and placed on the local people who joined the Land League, the Ladies' Land League and the Irish National League. The emphasis is on the relationships between the local leaders, their friends, neighbours and protagonists and how these relationships changed over twelve tumultuous years. We come to know James Bowe, Edmond Walsh, Ellen Forde, John Dowling, Rev. Patrick Meany, Constable James McElhoney and Resident Magistrate William Hort as their paths crossed during the different campaigns of that period.
