This chapter describes the significance of the Cavan acres for the Saundersons, and helps unravel the tortuous processes by which they were divested of this property. Sanderson, the Saunderson family, and the legacy of the O’Reillys are discussed. For the Saundersons of the nineteenth century, and for Colonel Edward Saunderson in particular, the O’Reillys provided a hint of medieval menace and colour to the well-mannered landscape of their demesne. The land agitators of the late nineteenth century built into their arguments a strong historical dimension, sometimes advocating tenant rights on the basis of the historical wrongs experienced by Catholic proprietors.

Keywords:   Cavan acres, Sanderson, Saunderson, O’Reillys, land agitators, tenant rights
