Strong Farmer is a unique memoir of the life of a prominent cattle dealer in County Meath, based on interviews carried out by his daughter.

(2nd Edition)

The Catholic 'strong farmer' was a crucial force in the shaping of modern Ireland from the early nineteenth century.

Politically, the strong farmers were the bulwarks of Catholic emancipation, of the post-Famine church and of mainstream Irish nationalism. Socially, they shaped the transition from a labour-intensive grain economy to a cattle economy in which the bulk of the rural economy became redundant.

In Strong Farmer, Ciaran Buckley brilliantly weaves together the threads of history and folklore to tell a tale of money, power and family ties
