What Irish state elites in the twentieth century were prepared to concede by way of land reform, the circumstances in which concessions were made and implemented and some of the effects that followed are considered in this chapter. The challenge throughout in this chapter is one of assessing the relative contributions of state elites, political and class forces to what was conceded, implemented and achieved by way of land reform. Popular agitations, under nationalist guidance for the most part, are shown to have been of importance to the timing and content of the land legislation conceded in 1903, 1909, 1923 and 1933. Who won and who lost in the course of twentieth-century Irish land struggles is a topic considered at some length.
