About this title


On a Sunday afternoon in October 1886, John Dillon stood in front of an assembled crowd in Woodford, east Galway. His audience - who had travelled from Counties Galway, Roscommon, Clare, Limerick, and King's - listened eagerly as he pleaded with them to adopt the recently-conceived 'Plan of Campaign.' If they did, he told them, they would benefit not only themselves, but all of Ireland. The Plan would bring the landlords of Ireland to their knees, he promised, and he hoped that every tenant-farmer present would resist the marquis of Clanricarde and stand by the evicted tenants. The people of Woodford duly did as Dillon bade them and numerous families suffered eviction and homelessness. When they decided to follow the advice of their political mentor, they did not expect to spend the next 30 years out of their homes. John Dillon MP and the marquis of Clanricarde, were diametric opposites in their politics and backgrounds, but held one trait in common: absolute intransigence. This book examines how the stubbornness of these men impacted the lives of the evicted tenants of Woodford and its community of planter-tenants. (Series: Maynooth Studies in Local History - Number 97)
