    Default Irish Land Commission formation and early duties - knowledge?

    Im doing some research into some historic land issues and seeking someone with knowledge of the activities of the Land Commission in the 1920's 1930s.

    Among their duties after the foundation of the Irish Free state in 1922 was facilitating the transfer of land ownership from Landlords to tenants, re-distribution etc. The process appears to have been set out in the land acts of 1923 etc.

    What is vesting, and how does it relate. Did they do some sort of formal act in 1931? Help appreciated.

    Is this professional Research or for private pursuit?

    The Land Commission dated from the 1880s and its big achievements were the 1903 Act and a 1909 Act allowing compulsory purchase. The 1923 Act was a tidying up by the Free State and it was abolished in about 1983.

    Vesting is where an interest in land (e.g. a lease or the freehold) starts to belong to someone. A future "vesting day" would be the date that an interest is due to pass from A to B.

    This would do an inter-cert student:

    I've not posted enough to start a thread, and this one was the nearest to my question-

    Could anyone suggest some good books on the history of land rights in Cork, or all of Ireland?

    Thanks

    You'd have to start with the Brehon law; Norman-French feudalism; the English system. All overlapped each other. Mostly the owner of land has the rights to it.

    Some of the works on agrarian distrubances, particularly the Rockites , would have a large reference to Cork and land rights

    Thanks Neiphin for the reference to article on .Daly - he is often overlooked these days.

    One of the late Judge Jophn Garavan's sons, Mark, has written a thesis on that period. John was proud of the family connection to Daly

    imho the Land League was at least as important for the development of t he country as was the War of Independence
