What’s in our May/June issue?

Published in Blogging Irish History

20.HistoryIreland3FINAL.16Apr 1Our May/June issue is out now, complete with another nifty cover courtesy of Robert Ballagh. And, as the cover suggests, we’re moving back towards centenary territory after our Brian Boru issue. In the current issue we have:


  • Lord Sligo’s plunder of ancient Greece.
  • Felix Larkin on the Phoenix Park murders.
  • Brian Hanley on the Dublin and Monaghan bombings.
  • Medieval wills.
  • The Howth gun-running.
  • The de facto Dublin branch of the pre-WW1 UVF (there was one, you know).
  • Reviews of two major new biographies: Martin Mansergh on Angus Mitchell’s Roger Casement and Patrick Maume on Dermot Meleady’s John Redmond.


Along with the usual winning formula of news, reviews, genealogy, architecture and a few more things as well.


Don’t forget to check out the new ‘Decade of Centenaries’ website that we have developed in partnership with the Department of Arts, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht. Our July/August issue will tackle the ‘Decade of Centenaries’ head-on, in the form of a special issue on the outbreak of the First World War. But in the meantime the May/June issue of History Ireland is in the shops today for the princely sum of €7. Alternatively, you can save a few quid by starting a subscription at any time. Enjoy!
