In this work, the uncertainties of change across the nineteenth century are evident. Changes occurred in the natural order with the rhythm of the seasons and with the calamitous failure of the potato crop in 1845. Change in the realm of ideas began with Daniel O'Connell's campaign for the emancipation of the majority Catholic population. The author's quality of life index, based on census data, demonstrates the processes of social change.
