This is a history of how people worked, where they lived, what they ate, wore, sickened and died from in Ireland from 1850 to 1922, rather than a history of how they saw themselves, each other and their place in the world. It summarises much useful information about life in Ireland in the period 1850–1922, incorporate some original research, suggests new lines of inquiry and disputes some historical orthodoxies that have grown up over the years. This chapter notes that life in Ireland in the seventy years covered by this book was more than an inexorable acceleration towards post-independence Ireland, north and south.
