Rundale: Settlement, society and farming

Ulster Folklore, the journal of the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, recently published a volume (No. 58, 2015) on Rundale: Settlement, Society and Farming.

The journal contains three contributions from the Sociology Department, MU which has been convening an all-Ireland Rundale research group for a number of years. 

Dr. Eamonn Slater writes on rundale's social and ecological sustainability. Two of Eamon's former PhD students also have contributions in the volume.  Dr. Eoin Flaherty (now at UCD) provides a statistical and documentary primer on rundale and Dr. Clodagh O Malley Gannon (now lecturing in MU) contributes a paper on rundale in the 20th century and the importance of commonage.
