Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is a social anthropological study of the community life and kinship system of small farmers in County Clare. Detail is given for the farm economy, marriage and family patterns, kinship structure, property and inheritance system, housing and settlement patterns, social stratification, labor exchange and employment, interpersonal relationships, public opinion and attitudes, and the nature of social and economic ties with areas outside of the farm community. It is demonstrated that the persistent decline in rural population is not due to poverty but to traditional social patterns centering on the family.
