Oliver Cromwell and Irish republicanism

Published in Cromwell, Issue 1 (Jan/Feb 2011), Letters, Volume 19

Sir,—Re Fergus Whelan’s claim that Irish republicanism is ‘not indigenous’ (HI 18.6, Nov./Dec. 2010). By the same token, Catholicism, Protestantism, Judaism and Islam are all imports. In fact, the only truly indigenous faith is paganism.—Yours etc.,
