Evictions on the Glinsk Creggs estate of Allan and Margaret Pollok in the 1850s
|dc.description.abstract||This thesis explores the background to the evictions on the Glinsk Creggs estate of Allan and Margaret Pollok in County Galway in the 1850s, and the course of the evictions in the years 1853-1856. It also examines the aftermath of the evictions and how the area was used as an exemplar of clearance in the decades that followed by men such as John Fitzgibbon, Matt Harris and Charles Stewart Parnell. The treatment of the Pollok family in local folklore and memory of the eviction is also examined. Other issues explored include the role of local leaders such as the parish priest and land agent and the role played by local authority figures such as the local resident magistrate and local constabulary members. Coverage of the evictions was extensive and press attitudes at local, national and international level are examined. The place of the Pollok evictions in the historiography of Irish evictions is also explored and the dismissal of the Pollok evictions in the historiography is also queried and the issue of caretaker evictions is discussed in relation to this issue.||en_US|
