A New History of Ireland, Volume VI


Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the economic and social history of Ireland during the period from 1850 to 1921. It suggests that this period represents an accelerated deterioration of the ideas and institutions of the past, combined with a slow and experimental development of those that came to replace them. Some of the major events in Ireland during this period include the premature reduction in assistance from the United Kingdom, population increase, and industrial development.

Keywords:   economic history, social history, Ireland, United Kingdom, population increase, industrial development
