A Reply to Lord Clanricarde's Letter' by 'Brigid', was a poem published in 1887 and found as a cutting amongst the Clanricarde estate papers, purporting to give a tenant's eye view of the confrontation with their landlord.
Clanricarde continued to resist land reform to the bitter end and the government tried in vain to persuade him to compromise.
Although Clanricarde fought through the courts to the highest level the compulsory purchase of his Galway estates by the Congested Districts Board, established in 1891 to purchase land for viable smallholdings and to promote local industries, this is what eventually happened in 1915.
