Thomas Durcan (1866-1927) Mayo Merchant, Councillor and Family man' tells the story of a Mayo man who travelled from childhood poverty and eviction to personal and material success.

His life was devoted to the national causes of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, culminating with his own service as a devoted local Authority member.

His death in 1927 without a will led to litigation in relation to his estate, which lasted for ten days in the High Court and ten days in the Supreme Court. That story is told in this book against the background of rapidly evolving Irish history.
