A Statistical and Agricultural Survey of the County of Galway

A Statistical and Agricultural Survey of the County of Galway

Hely Dutton

$35.66

Appealing to anyone interested in the social and agricultural history of pre-famine Ireland, this book written by Hely Dutton twenty years before the Great Famine, was an attempt to answer the question of what would happen to Ireland’s population without potatoes.

His survey resulted in a description of the agricultural conditions and practices of Galway in the early Nineteenth Century, including observations about the soil, climate, modes of agriculture crops and live stock, as well as the nature of farms, rents and leases.

He interspersed his descriptions with robustly argued suggestions for scientifically based improvements. He followed the annalists of Gaelic Ireland by including chronologies of the leading officials of Galway town, as well as of the senior churchmen of the area.
