The Clanricarde: Information from Answers.com (341 words)
The Clanricarde, or the Mac William Uachtar, was a title held by twelve members of the Burke family of Clanricarde between 1332 and 1544.
In 1543 Ulick na gCeann Burke accepted the title Earl of Clanricarde from Henry VIII and from that point onwards the heads of the family remained mostly loyal to the crown of England.
Because of this the use of Clanricarde continued, although that of Mac William Iochtar was abandoned.
Origins - The Clanricarde estate, county Galway (1340 words)
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.
