Synopsis: Built to inspire awe and deference, the country homes of Irish landlords were traditionally referred to as "big houses." In post-Famine Ireland, these edifices stood as implacable symbols of the economic and social strength of the landed class who resided in them. Their mystique attracted both curiosity and contempt. However, in less than ten decades, the whole fabric of Irish landed society had been totally transformed by economic, social and political developments, and this seemingly indomitable bastion had begun to crumble.

In this absorbing and in-depth social history, author Terence Dooley opens the doors on a declining way of life, and discusses the reasons for its demise.
