Monster Land Demonstration, Parnell & Maguire at Belleek, Fermanagh, 1880

Sale price€19,00


It was 1880, Ireland's rural population had been decimated by famine, evictions and emigration. The ones who were left behind had to work from dawn til dusk to scrape a living from their smallholdings. Landlords did not care and charged unsustainable rents. The inability to pay these rents would result in eviction. Security of Tenure for you and your family...Is it too much to ask?

Along came the mighty men of Michael Davitt and Charles Stewart Parnell to champion the cause of the tenant farmer. They would not be silenced. It was time to stand up and be counted...This public notice calls for tenant farmers from Fermanagh, Donegal, Leitrim, Sligo and Tyrone to attend. So gather one and all at Belleek in Co. Fermanagh in the shadow of The Round Tower and speak with your numbers...

Let this parchment remind you of the hard won efforts of our forefathers...

We are delighted to present these fascinating rarities of old Ireland for you to own. We look forward to helping you create your own collection that can be treasured and admired by your family for many generations to come!
