    Abstract

    Little has been written in the way of a formal history of the events surrounding the evictions, that took place on the O'Kelly estate situated on the margins of the 'Bog of Allen' in County Kildare in the late 1800s. The aim of this thesis is to rectify this by telling the story and asking a number of questions of these events and examining the effect, the evictions had on the community in Clongorey. The O' Kelly estate consisted of almost 2,500 acres and embodied the townslands of Clongorey, Barrettstown, Blacktrench and Tankards Garden.
