A pioneering study in the conflict of farmers and farm labourers in Southern Ireland since the time of the Land League

This book reveals extensive newspaper and other written records of the the labourers' working conditions, their organisations, their strikes and their political activities.

The focus is on County Cork, developments there being related to what is known for other counties. from the agitation of the Irish Land and Labour Association, demanding cottages, at the turn of the century, the book moves to the great struggles of 1918-23 when the Irish Transport and General Workers Union sought to establish an adequate standard of living for the farm labourer.

The defeat of trade unionism on the farm 1921-23 is detailed. The revival of trade union agitation with the Federation of Rural Workers in the 1940's is then examined while the workings of the Agricultural Wages Board 1936-76 are analysed in detail.
