A Person who owns land which is not rightfully his according to folk memory of pre English landlord times. Originates mainly from a time when at the inception of the Free State, some farmers bought land from English landlords, others, hated even more, got land through favour in the 19th century. A term very much on the wane now as most people have moved on since the celtic tiger economy, although still a very effective insult in a pub against those of privilege.
