This book is a study of the Land War of 1879 to 1910 on the Belcarra Estate of two of Ireland's most notorious landlords, Harriet Gardiner & Susanna Pringle.
DescriptionThis 3 year study entitled "When Crowbar & Bayonet Ruled" contains a detailed account of the evictions, trials, imprisonments, boycotting, beatings and house levelling that occurred across the estate from Belcarra to Frenchill. The study contains detailed accounts of the monster political meetings that took place in Belcarra, Tully, Logaphuill, Frenchill, Ballyheane, Castlebar and elsewhere, as well as the trial at Ballyglass & Castlebar of the Tully 5 in 1901 for coercion. The rise of nationalism, the role of the police and clergy and the role played by James Daly and the Connaught Telegraph are also examined.
