Name: Conversations With Carlyle

Subtitle: Reprint Of The 1892 Classic

Author: Duffy, Charles Gavan

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2006

ISBN: 0 85034 114 0

Contents: That Gavan Duffy's Conversations With Carlyle has been out of print since its first edition in 1892 shows how modern Ireland is losing touch with its political origins. In this book it is reproduced in full, along with related texts. There is a substantial extract from Carlyle's Irish Journey, as well as shorter excerpts from his Sartor Resartus, Past & Present and Chartism.
Thomas Carlyle is now much forgotten, but his work went into the making of England. What is not widely appreciated is that his condemnation of Manchester capitalism struck a chord in mid-nineteenth century Ireland. The backdrop to Carlyle's association with Young Ireland and to his journeys in Ireland was the Great Famine of 1847, itself an indictment of laissez-faire. Young Ireland found in Carlyle's demands for political intervention in the production process an inspiration for remedying the ills of Ireland.
Brendan Clifford's introduction, Stray Thoughts About Young Ireland, considers the dynamics of the strange relationship between Irish revolutionaries and the English imperialist prophet, in the context of the views of Professor Maurice O'Connell, Conor Cruise O'Brien and Professor Roy Foster.

Extracts: From the beginning of Brendan Clifford's introduction Stray Thoughts On Young Ireland.

Name: Coolacrease

Subtitle: The true story of the Pearson executions:—an incident in the Irish War of Independence

Author: Heaney, Paddy, Muldowney, Pat, O'Connor,

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2008

ISBN: 978-1-903497-48-7

Contents: COOLACREASE: A Shocking Story

At the end of the Irish War of Independence, two brothers were shot in Coolacrease, Co. Offaly, and their house was burned.

The people who carried out the shootings were not Irish rebels or uninvolved civilians. They were loyalist Protestants who had chosen to take up arms against the forces of the democratically elected Irish government. The IRA command ordered their execution.

So what is shocking about the deaths of these two men, in comparison with the hundreds of other deaths in the war waged by the British Imperial Government against the Irish democracy?

These events were practically unkown until 2007 when the Irish national broadcasting agency RTE produced a television documentary which portrayed the executions of the Pearson brothers as a sectarian anti-Protestant atrocity in furtherance of a land grab, as part of an ethnic cleansing drive by the Irish Republican movement against an ethnic minority in Ireland.

RTE claimed that their case was based on official evidence in documents of the Irish Land Commission.

…and now comes the really shocking part

RTE could not produce the documents they claimed proved their case, and the Land Commission denies that the programme ever examined the records of the division of the Pearson farm. The case presented by RTE is nothing but spurious atrocity propaganda, a travesty of what really happened.

The documentary record is presented in this book, which tells the true story of these tragic events.

This is a shocking story of low standards and cheap propaganda.
