Roscommon was a land hungry county. The landless rose in large numbers and declared they would rather be shot than starved. Their opposition and brutality was directed against those evicting their tenants or ëtaking-upí land from which another had been evicted. By depleting the ranks of the landless labourers, the famine eased the pressure on the land supply and broke the resolve of the ëdisaffectedí.
