To get an idea of the value of £15,000 in 1805, the salary offered to new teachers in the National Education System around 1828 was £28 a year a multiple of 535.  The starting pay for a teacher in Ireland is now €36,000.  A multiple of that is €19.26 million or £17.3 million sterling.

Alleged Ignorance of the Plough. Reen, Bantry, 1800. 1832 From Dublin Penny Journal. Glengariff. Ripening Outdoor Grapes in Bantry, Mr.Tuckey, Mrs. Taylor, Mr. Hutchins of Ardnagashel


The Belfast Monthly Magazine Vol. 10, No. 55 (Feb. 28, 1813), pp. 120-121.

The assertion may be correct right up to the 1860s there were strenuous efforts by some Landlords and their Agents to promote productive agriculture but with scant results. The Land tenure at the time did not generally help.

 

This may have been on either the Kenmare (Brown) or Bantry (White) Estate.

Aiten Alive With Fleas (Dreancaid in Irish) Until DDT Came Along. John Philpot Curran, Eaten alive by fleas while on ircuit in Carlow, wrote ‘An Ode to Fleas’


Aiten Alive With Fleas (Dreancaid in Irish) Until DDT Came Along.

Hard to believe now but for those in their 70s upwards a house even prosperous ones was often shared with fleas. As you went down the social scale the more acute the problem.  Children would dread going to school exposing their necks with multiple flea bites. The miraculously appearance in the 1950s of DDT and a few puffs on the beds fleas gone.  The use of turf for the fire was supposed to exacerbate the problem of infestation.

From the early 1950s DDT was used extensively with miraculous results prior to it being questioned for its long term potential toxic qualities.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

John Philpot Curran, Cork born poor scholar, teacher, journalist, barrister, judge, father of Sarah Curran betrothed of executed patriot, Robert Emmett. Eaten alive by fleas while on circuit in Carlow, wrote ‘An Ode to Fleas’

James Joyce in Ulysses refers to Philpot and the flea.
