The role of Landlords during the Great Irish Famine

September 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

**Booked out**

What impact did the Great Famine have on land ownership and estate boundaries in Ireland? What did it mean for tenant farmers and how did the landed gentry respond?

Using primary archive and secondary research sources, this talk will document how the landed gentry treated their tenants, how they managed their land in the decades before and after the famine, changing estate boundaries, and their roles as members of the Board of Guardians of the Irish workhouses.

This talk is presented by Tailte Éireann, the new state agency from the merger of the Property Registration Authority, the Valuation Office and Ordnance Survey Ireland.
