    Abstract

    Creameries became a key target for reprisals by Crown forces in Ireland in 1920. Industrial units in which cream was separated from milk and churned into butter, creameries had become a key element in the rural economy in most dairying districts following their introduction to Ireland in the 1880s. These districts were mainly located in Munster and south Leinster and in a large region in the northern part of the island stretching from Sligo across to north Antrim.
