Synopsis: Poverty in County Clare in the 1830s is vividly portrayed in this publication. The information on which it is based has been extracted from one of the reports of the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Conditions of the Poorer Classes in Ireland which was set up in 1833. The Commission engaged Assistant Commissioners to collect evidence on the causes of Ireland's massive poverty from a variety of witnesses in one parish in every barony. These witnesses included clergymen, beggars, farmers, labourers, landlords and tradesmen. Their evidence, given at first hand, is now, for the first time, made accessible to the general public by CLASP PRESS.
From the Publisher: The first publication from CLASP PRESS County Clare A History and Topography gave people a pre-Famine snapshot of Clare. However one would have to point out that it portrayed the Establishment view with scant regard for the day to day struggle of the ordinary poor. We now present the other view and illustrate the reality of the plight of the ordinary labourer and peasant in County Clare in the 1830's. Expect to be shocked at the extent of the incredible poverty suffered by many and the appalling lack of response from the Establishment.
