The present paper is an attempt at an economic interpretation of the development of Irish agriculture, from the potato famine to the First World War, roughly 1847-1913, on the basis of the vast, and indeed unique, body of statistical data which are available on the subject. It may, perhaps, be noted that the plan for this study has, in fact, been suggested by the wealth of quantitative information which is contained in a small volume, Agricultural Statistics, 1847-1926, Report and Tables, compiled by the Statistics Branch, Department of Industry and Commerce, Dublin, 1930.
