Name: Belfast In The French Revolution

Subtitle:

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor:

Category: United Irish Collection

Publisher: Belfast Historical & Educational Society

Published: 1989

ISBN: 1 870278 00 1

Contents: "Belfast In The French Revolution" tells the story of the French Revolution by use of materials taken from the columns of "The Northern Star", the Belfast United Irish paper. An introductory chapter explains why Belfast was predisposed by its own history to indulge in a wholehearted and unanimous vicarious participation in French affairs, the like of which occurred nowhere else. The background to the Revolution is explained in a chapter on its philosophical antecedents?on "Voltaire and Rousseau". The story is carried from 1789 to 1794, with chapters on Mirabeau's attempted reform of the Church; the Girondins; the reform of the Calendar; and the year of Robespierre and Saint-Just. Also included is the full Northern Star account of the great Belfast Review and Celebration held on Bastille Day, 1792. 148 pp.

Name: Belfast Politics with Thoughts On The British Constitution

Subtitle:

Author: Joy, Henry & Bruce, William

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2010

ISBN: 978-085034-122-5

Contents: Henry Joy's Belfast Politics is impressive. In it he gives expression to the political ferment of Belfast and its hinterland iat a time of optimistic constitutional endeavour. Volunteers, United Irishmen, Catholic Committee—they all speak in this book. And they don't just declaim, they argue about reform. All agree that change must come: but should the franchise be deepened amongst Protestants, and should the Catholics be included in the Constitution and be part of the body politic?

Given the importance and vitality of Joy's Belfast Politics, it is curious to find that the present edition is the first full reprint since its initial publication in 1794.

Also included in this work are Strictures On The Test Taken By Certain Societies Of United Irishmen and articles by William Bruce, Thoughts On The British Constitution.

Brendan Clifford supplies and Introduction providing context, as well as an Afterword examining the reasons for the disappointing Northern turn-out for the 1798 Rebellion and the silence of Belfast during the passing of the Union Bill. Also reviewed is the attempt by former United Irishmen during the following generation to establish an independent Belfast University (of which Inst is a remnant).

A Postscript examines some recent contributions from Cambridge University to the re-writing of Irish history in the British interest.

Name: Bolg An Tsolair/Gaelic Magazine, 1795

Subtitle:

Author:

Editor: Clifford, Brendan and Muldowney, Pat

Category: Gaelic Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1999

ISBN: 0 85034 083 7

Contents: This is two books in one. Book One comprises a "Gaelic Magazine, Bolg An Tsolair", published in 1795. Only one issue was produced. The Editor was Patrick Lynch, who taught Irish to Thomas Russell and other Belfast reformers. He put together an interesting magazine. Apart from an Irish Grammar, there are some fascinating Dialogues, in Irish and English, more rooted in the life of the country than such texts usually are. To fill out the magazine, Lynch included some Gaelic poetry which had been collected and translated by Charlotte Brooke. Again these appear in Irish and English—and the translations are surprisingly good. Book Two offers a biographical profile of Patrick Lynch and Charlotte Brooke, who in their different ways represented two aspects of Ireland as it then was. (Charlotte Brooke's family were cousins to the Brookes of Brookeborough.) As there is little information about Charlotte, the authors reconstruct her world, the two guiding stars of which are Henry Brooke, the litterateur, and William Law, a writer of theological/philosophical works as well as devotional ones which were fundamentally at variance with the tendency of English Christianity. The combination of these very different influences served to produce a very unusual lady who became absorbed by the lusciousness of Gaelic culture. 248 pp. Bibliography. Index.
