Big Houses Divided Land and 1923 Land Act by Terry Dunne Historian

14th September @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


This lecture entitled Big House Divided Land and the 1923 Land Act will reflect upon Terry’s latest research, The Hogan Land Act signed into law in August 1923 was the final phase in the downfall of the landed estates and in large part the beginning of a process of land re-distribution that saw as much as 20% of farmland in the 26 counties re-distributed to small-holders. This talk will look at the different strands of social conflict during the revolution which the Free State administration sought to address.
