    Abstract

    The purpose of this study is to give an account of the life and times of Denis KilBride in as balanced a fashion as possible. KilBride had a long and varied career and lived to be seventy-six years of age. The study concentrates on his life and times, which included the Luggacurren evictions of which he played a major part, his path to political life and his representation of three constituencies, south Kerry, north Galway and south Kildare for a period of thirty-one years. As a result of the prolonged depression in agriculture, KilBride, an educated and politically active gentlemen tenant farmer with his own subtenants and labourers, in an era of rising expectations, was to experience insurmountable financial difficulties, which culminated in his eventual eviction from an 868 acre farm on the Lansdowne estate at Wood House, Luggacurren. The Luggacurren evictions took place during the turbulent agrarian agitation years of the plan of campaign from cl 886- 1906.
