The property defence association was formed in December 1880, to combat
the grown and influence of the Land League whose "truculent agitation,
commenced in 1869 had excited the tenant class throughout Ireland
to repudiate all contracts and oppose all process of law." The Property Defence
Association, whose first chairman was the earl of Courtown, consisted
of a who's who of major landlords, gentry and establishment figures.
Among their first committee were the Earls of Rosse, Meath, Bandon,
Donoughmore, Carysfort and leitrim. Also the Marquis of ormonde,
lord talbot De Malahide and the earl of Courtown. The Land League,
superbly organised, had a years start on the establishment and as its power
and influence increased it sounded the death knell of centuries of rack
rent, landlord oppression, evictions and blatant injustice for a disenfranchised
and impoverished peasantry.
