The Irish land question and land ownership were central components of Irish nationalism in the nineteenth century. UK government backed land purchase schemes had long-term financial implications that became central issues when Ireland seceded from the United Kingdom. This project is a quantitative study of bonds guaranteed by the UK government to finance the transfer of land ownership from landlords to tenants in Ireland (North & South). These bonds were traded over a turbulent period of time and they can help to answer how markets responded to Irish partition, Independence, Civil War and ‘default’.
