Transcript of Ireland's Industrial Revolution

The Revolution The transformation of the European economy is known as the Industrial Revolution.

Factory production transformed the way Europeans lived.

By the early 19th century the banks systems became sophisticated, transport systems elaborate and roads opened up to expand markets. Urbanisation was on the increase and as population expanded so did the demand for manufactured goods. The number of people working in cities continued to rise and mechanised production meant faster and more efficient delivery to market of demanded goods. Before The Revolution Every economy depended on the production of clothes, tools and utensils, most of this work was done on a small scale in rural homes or small workshops. The Irish Industrial Revolution Ireland's Industrial Revolution However, Ireland didn't experience the revolution the same time as the rest of Europe. In the early 19th century Ireland was poverty stricken, experiencing famine, mass emigration, and experienced none of the benefits of the Industrial Revolution. Ireland remained an agricultural dependant country, yet in the 1840s the entire crop of potatoes, Ireland's primary agricultural product, failed to crops leading to the most devastating famine in Irish history.In search for jobs promised in industrializing countries, emigration soared through the first half of the century, leaving the nation stripped of labor and resources. How This Connects With Lughnasa 1. The setting of the play is obviously just as the Industrial Revolution is starting in Ireland. The Mundy family still do work according to before the revolution (knitting gloves).

2. 'Ireland was poverty stricken, experiencing famine' this is obvious in their living style as they are barely able live with the money they have.

3. The mass emigration links in to the Rose and Agnus storyline. Like so many others at the time, maybe they just wanted what other countries promised rather than what Ireland had to offer. Georgia Parish
