The AHSI Autumn Symposium 2016 sought to complement the very successful AHSI Summer Conference Agriculture, Conflict and Rebellion in Early Twentieth Century Ireland which was held at the National Museum of Ireland, Country Life at Turlough House, Co. Mayo.

This one-day symposium complemented the successful two-day AHSI Summer Conference 2016 entitled Agriculture, Conflict and Rebellion in Early Twentieth Century Ireland.  It addressed various aspects of rural life and the farming economy on the island of Ireland in the early twentieth century.
