The Irish problem

The Irish problem: what lacks the backward farmer most: security or skills?  (1869) 
by Hibernicus

essays first published in the Tyrone Constitution; it is unrecorded whether Hibernicus is the same author William Lecky who wrote under that pseudonym in the late 1850s

WHAT LACKS THE BACKWARD

FARMER MOST:


SECURITY, OR SKILL?

PRINTED AT THE TYRONE CONSTITUTION OFFICE,

1869.



The five following papers, written by Hibernicus, are reprints from the Tyrone Constitution. Their object is chiefly to show that instead of less landlord influence more (but that of an elevated type) is required in those parts of Ireland, the backwardness of which calls most loudly for legislation.

The writer had not perused Master Fitzgibbon's recent pamphlet when the above papers were penned. He now feels gratified to find himself in accord, in so many points, with so able a thinker.

December 1869.



This work was published before January 1, 1927, and is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least 100 years ago.
