This chapter describes family farming and rural immobility in post-Famine Ireland. It analyses the behaviour patterns of the medium-sized farm group in negotiating issues of marriage, migration and inheritance amongst its family members, first outlining the distribution of farm units in the Catholic parish of Clogheen-Burncourt since 1820. The chapter then examines inheritance patterns, nature of interrelationships between marriage, wills and inheritance. It also examines the strategies in distributing farm-holding units and farm families, and the handling of these resource units within specific family and social structures.

Keywords:   family farming, rural immobility, post-Famine, Ireland, marriage, migration, inheritance, Clogheen-Burncourt, farm-holding units
