Land, Politics, and Society in Eighteenth-Century Tipperary

Thomas P. Power


This book examines Ireland during the 18th century. It sets out to reconstruct in detail the economic, social, and political history of Tipperary, Ireland’s largest inland county. Using extensive and meticulous research, it examines the growing commercialization of the local economy, the changing composition of landed society, the dynamics of land tenure, sectarian tension, and the emergence of long-term rural unrest. In addition, the book includes a chapter on the revolutionary decade of the 1790s.

Keywords: Ireland, 18th century, Tipperary, commercialization, local economy, landed society, land tenure, sectarian tension, rural unrest
