Name: The O'Neill Years

Subtitle: Unionist Politics, 1963-1969

Author: Gordon, David

Editor:

Category: Northern Ireland Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1989

ISBN: 0 85034 039 X

Contents: Terence O'Neill's tenure as Prime Minister of Northern Ireland witnessed the first major split in the history of Ulster Unionism, and the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement. Despite the importance of this crucial period, David Gordon's pioneering analysis is the first comprehensive examination of O'Neillism and its legacy. The O'Neill Years covers the period from 1963, when Terence O'Neill replaced Lord Brookeborough as Northern Ireland Premier, and ends with O'Neill's resignation just a few months before the arrival of troops on the streets of Belfast in August 1969. David Gordon reassesses O'Neill's role in Unionist politics in the 1960s, and concludes that Captain O'Neill's leadership was primarily responsible for the disintegration of Ulster Unionism at the end of the decade. David Gordon's seminal work presents a major challenge to traditional interpretations of modern Irish history and politics. 168 pp.

Subtitle:

Author: Tucker, Fr. Sean

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2008

ISBN: 9781 9034976 44 9

Contents: In this booklet, Fr. Seán Tucker traces the history of Millstreet Parish across nearly a thousand years. It is the first such record of the Parish. It is based on detailed analyses of church records using many primary sources and is the result of a long-term interest in the area by Father Tucker - truly a labour of love.

Each phase of the Parish's history is also put in the context of its time, both nationally and internationally, and Father Tucker shows a great appreciation of all the forces that shaped our history and helped make us what we are.

Father Seán Tucker grew up in Ballydaly, was educated at Rathduane National School and at the De la Salle College in Waterford. He completed his priestly training at Oscott College, Birmingham, did further studies in Social Work at Aston and Selly Oak Colleges. He worked in the Archdiocese of Birmingham for 25 years. He spent three years in a Charismatic Community in the USA and worked in a parish in South Africa for the past 12 years.

Name: The Origin of Irish Catholic-Nationalism

Subtitle:

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1992

ISBN: 0 85034 053 5

Contents: Modern nationalist Ireland—Catholic-nationalist Ireland—has its imaginative source in Walter Cox's "Irish Magazine". Before Cox it was inconceivable. After Cox it was inevitable. Walter Cox was the most daring, innovative and realistic spirit among the Dublin United Irish leaders during the years leading up to the Rebellion. After a period in exile, he returned to Dublin to keep alive the memory of the United Irishmen with his Magazine. And by an act of genius he combined elements not previously found together—Catholicism, Republicanism, nationalism and social radicalism—and made the combination live in the minds of the people of Dublin in the first instance. And gradually that combination took root in all those parts of Ireland which had been Gaelic or Catholic. Cox is the sole point of substantial continuity between the United Irishmen and the Irish nationalist movement of the 19th and 20th centuries. Yet he has been deleted from history by the historians of tis nationalist movement which claims to have originated in the United Irishmen. He has been remembered into the 20th century only as a Dublin folk-hero. Cox has been marginalised because propagandist historians have preferred to put a gloss of liberalism on Catholic-nationalism, even though, at every critical juncture since 1808, development has been determined by Catholic-nationalism. In this selection from the eight years of the Magazine, the reader can see the mind of a new nation being formed in the post-Union vacuum in which the Ascendancy, having lost its Parliamentary power-base through the Act of Union, continues to aggravate the people, though it can no longer suppress them. Brendan Clifford argues that Daniel O'Connell was only the demagogue of the national movement conceived and launched by Cox. This clarification of the origins of Catholic-nationalism appears at an opportune moment, that movement being in severe crisis and possibly approaching the end of its natural life. 136 pp. Illustrated. Index.

Name: The Origins & Organisation of British Propaganda in Ireland, 1920

Subtitle:

Author: Murphy, Dr. Brian P (osb)

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2006

ISBN: 1 903497 24 8

Contents: On 22 May 1920, the Irish Statesman, the journal associated with Sir Horace Plunkett and George Russell, declared that "…this is a time for plain speaking and we shall speak plainly. The propaganda supplied to the British Press from Dublin Castle is a propaganda of lies. The version of the state of Ireland based upon this propaganda which the Coalition's kept Press serves up to the British people is lies."
Dr. Brian P. Murphy osb has been working for many years on British and Irish propaganda in the years before and during the Irish War of Independence, c.1916-1922. In this essay he has concentrated on British propaganda, with some reference to the origins and workings of Irish propaganda to which it was opposed.
There are also some reflections on the manner in which propaganda may have influenced the writing of Irish history for these important years.
Dr. Murphy is a member of the Benedictine Community at Glenstal Abbey, County Limerick. He is a graduate of Oxford University, Trinity College, Dublin, and the National University of Ireland (UCD).

Name: The Pearson Executions In Co. Offaly

Subtitle: a debate on alleged sectarianism during the War of Independence

Author: Muldowney, Pat

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2007

ISBN: 9 781903 497326

Contents: Readers of our literature will be aware of our efforts to counter the revisionist writing and commentary on our history.

The event dealt with here is a rather classic example of how these issues are dealt with these days by our media and academic historians. But more importantly it is an example of how this type of issue should be dealt with and all the facts of the case established.

A book appears about an incident that involved the killing of two Protestant family members during the War of Independence. The IRA executed them. That was sufficient to set off a typical harangue by Eoghan Harris (Sunday Independent, October 2nd.) as if that was all there was to the event and the usual invective followed about alleged sectarianism of the IRA. Then, our old friend, Roy Foster (BA., MA., Ph.D., D.Litt (Hons), Hons.Litt.D., FRSL., FRHistS., FBA. Carroll Professor of Irish History at Oxford University) weighed in with a declaration in the Dublin Review about "…the murder of the Pearson brothers in Kinnitty Co. Offaly in June 1921 and the burning of their house—the subject of a recent local study." (Dublin Review, Autumn 2006). This debate examines that 'local study' in some detail.

Messrs. Harris and Foster could not have been more wrong and Pat Muldowney set out to prove it and did so comprehensively and conclusively on the Indymedia website. Messrs. Harris and Foster did not engage in the debate and it was left to some anonymous Smart Alecs to try to make their case for them. They failed abysmally. We thought it all worth recording.

Name: The Poems of Geoffrey O'Donoghue

Subtitle: with Ireland's War Poets 1641-1653 by John Minahane

Author: O'Donoghue, Geoffrey

Editor: Minahane, John

Category: Gaelic Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2008

ISBN: 978-1-903-497-49-4

Contents: Séafraidh Ó Donnachadha an Ghleanna, or Geoffrey O'Donoghue of Glenflesk, wa a lively, witty and robust poet of 17th. century Kerry. This is the first collection of his work since Patrick Dinneen's pioneering edition of 1902. The Irish text is accompanied by an English translation, which tries to point to the poetry in the original (Introduction). Included also are poems doubtfully attributed to Geoffrey but interesting in their own right, and some poems relating to the Cromwellian War in which he fought.

In Ireland's War Poets 1641-1653 John Minahane ranges through the rich and striking poetry which was part of the great conflict. Among the poets featured are Pádraigin Haicéad, Piaras Feirtéar, Toirdhealbhach Ó Conchobhair, Seán Ó Criagáin and the enigmatic Diarmaid Óg Ó Murchadha, whose three poems are among the book's highlights. This literature has been shamefully neglected by professional scholars, and much of it is published here, in whole or in part, for the first time.

Published with an essay on Ireland's War Poets 1641-1653 by John Minahane.

Translation by John Minahane.

Name: The Rescue of Princess Clementina (Stuart)

Subtitle: A 1719 Adventure of the Irish Brigades

Author: Wogan, Sir Charles

Editor: Winch, Cathy

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Belfast Historical & Educational Society

Published: 2008

ISBN: 978-1-872078-12-0

Contents: Charles Wogan (1685?-1754) was a member of an important Catholic family in Rathcoffey near Dublin, who spent most of his life in exile in France and Spain. A deeply sympathetic character, twice in his life he had occasion to defeat measures taken by George the First, King of England. First he led an escape from Newgate gaol where he was awaiting trial for treason for his part in the rising of 1715; three years later he arranged the escape of a princess arrested on the orders of King George.

The princess was Clementina Sobieski, the grand-daughter of the Polish King who won the battle of Vienna against the Turks in 1683. She was engaged to be married to James Francis Edward, son of James II, the Stuart King who was driven from the British throne in 1688 and replaced by William of Orange, later followed by the Hanoverians.

Imprisoning the last Stuart claimant's fiancée, King George did not count on Wogan who, with the help of three of his relations, officers in the Irish brigade of Dillon based in France, scooped the princess from her prison; and they galloped over the Alps in their carriage in winter to safety. Clementina and James were married soon after and their first child was to be Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Writing to Jonathan Swift in 1732, Wogan comments on history written to adorn a country with glorious tales, and on the need for an Irish history that would fulfill that purpose. His writing of the Clementina story was a step in that direction. Letters which Chevalier Wogan exchanged with Swift are reproduced in an annex to the book. Wogan's story appears here both in the original French and in translation, together with an introduction by Cathy Winch.

Name: The Revision Of European History

Subtitle:

Author: Fennell, Desmond

Editor:

Category: General

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2003

ISBN: 0 85034 104 3

Contents: In this conversational book Desmond Fennell provides three things in one: * a critique of the standard History of Europe as found in textbooks and works of reference, on the grounds that it is distorted by 'imprecise designation' and 'victors' history—and does not make sense for Europeans in the twenty-first century; * a manual which enables readers of the 'standard history', wherever encountered, to note the main distortions and make appropriate mental corrections; * an outlined 'new history of Europe' which would be 'true and clear' and make sense for Europeans living in the twenty-first century (see page 79).
