Farm, Field and Fireside: The changing patterns of land and home ownership
The saying goes a man’s home is his castle! Regardless of scale or social class the desire to own one’s own home has always been important to Irish people. This fifth annual Tipperary County Museum lecture series will examine the changing relationships and patterns of property ownership in 19th and 20th century Ireland. The economic and social factors that influenced these patterns and the consequences of such changes will be examined. Political involvement pre and post independence has had a large influence on ownership and this will be examined through a discussion of the various land acts as well as Free State government policy on housing in the newly formed state.
The workload of the home owners and conditions within the house in some cases will be explored and anybody with objects associated with the domestic interior are encouraged to bring them to Claudia Kinmonth’s lecture.
The inspiration for this lecture series came from looking at the many buildings, streetscapes, townscapes and villages featured in the Museums historic postcard collection that features in our current Exhibition A Message in Time - a multi-dimensional investigation of the relationship between humans and the written word, our obsession with communication, and how this continues to evolve and change as new technologies come on-stream.
