Nenagh and North Tipperary during the revolutionary decade

Published in Hedge School Recordings, Podcasts, Uncategorized

Having considered the ‘global’ impact of the Irish revolution in the last podcast (Dev in America), this Hedge School zooms in on the ‘local’—the market town of Nenagh and the surrounding North Tipperary area during the revolutionary decade—but also sets events in the wider national context. 

Listen to Tommy Graham, editor of History Ireland, in discussion with Gerard DooleyJohn FlannerySeán Hogan and Caitlin White


Ger Dooley, originally from County Laois, has studied early twentieth-century North Tipperary and has published two books on the towns of Nenagh and Roscrea during that period. He is a programme manager in the Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business in UCD.

John Flannery is a member of the Tipperary in the Decade of Revolution group and of the Tipperary GAA Bloody Sunday Commemoration Committee, and is a past president of the Ormond Historical Society.

Seán Hogan is also a member of the Tipperary in the Decade of Revolution group and the author of The Black and Tans in North Tipperary—policing, revolution and war 1913–1922 (Nenagh Guardian, 2013), widely regarded as a definitive account of events in North Tipperary. 

Caitlin White is studying for a Ph.D at Trinity College, Dublin, investigating how public history was used to promote various identities in the two Irish states after partition. She has a chapter on public history in Nenagh in the forthcoming The public in public history (Routledge, 2021).

This podcast is supported by Tipperary County Council and the Heritage Council as part of ‘Nenagh 800’.
