Published in Blogging Irish History

HistoryIrelandJanFeb2015CoverWebChristmas is over and its time to leave off the hard livin’, but all is not lost: our first issue of 2015 should be coming through letterboxes and hitting bookshelves over the next day or two. And its a good one, if we do say so ourselves. In it you’ll find:

• Jason McHugh on the leadership of the Confederate Catholics of Ireland

• Parnell’s romantic life before Mrs O’Shea

• Shane Nagle on whether 1916 was worth it

• Niall Bergin and Laura McAtackney on the graffiti of Kilmainham Gaol

• Martin O’Donoghue on commemorating John Redmond

• The winning entry from the All-Island Decade of Centenaries schools’ history competition

• Stephen Kelly on Thatcher and Haughey

• Peter Harbison on the Royal Irish Academy’s Art and architecture of Ireland

All this, along with reviews of the Man on the bridge project and Michael Laffan’s Judging W.T. Cosgrave, the latest instalment of our 2016 countdown, a musket from the Indian Mutiny, Documents on Irish Foreign Policy, and even some espionage to boot.

The Jan./Feb. 2015 issue of History Ireland will be available in all the usual outlets. And if Santa didn’t bring you a subscription, you can sign up for one here. Happy New Year!
