Maynooth Studies in Local History

Enclosing commonage means more than land clearances and personal traumas; it is a complex process spanning a millennium.

This book examines the origin and concept of commonage and its subsequent enclosure by grasping landlords, desperate squatters and land speculators, all sharing a common opportunism and a multiplicity of tactics.

Vignettes of events in County Dublin illustrate the process within different contexts as do longer case studies of Dalkey Commons with its squatters and land speculators, the Big Sugar Loaf with anti-enclosure riots, the Little Sugar Loaf with individual small encroachments and Bray where Commissioners organised a rejuvenated environment.
