What’s in our September/October issue?

Published in Blogging Irish History

15.HistoryIreland5.FINAL 19Aug (1) 01Normal service is being resumed after our World War One special issue (that’s two special issues in a year; a new record). The latest edition of History Ireland will be hitting the shelves and popping through letterboxes from Monday 1 September; and gentle reader, in it you will find all kinds of good stuff, including:


  • Laurence Fenton on Frederick Douglass


  • Lar Joye on an Irish link to the Franco-Prussian War


  • John Redmond’s Woodenbridge speech


  • Brian Hanley on John Regan’s Myth and the Irish state


  • Our review of Ken Loach’s Jimmy’s Hall


  • How Guinness saved Ireland in WW2


  • UCD and Spanish fascism


  • Is the Leaving Cert fit for purpose?


And, as ever, the usual mix of news, reviews, genealogy, architecture and a few more things.


Starting with the Electric Picnic, our Hedge School programme will be starting up again for the autumn. Up for discussion in Stradbally are Showbands on Saturday, followed by World War One on Sunday. If you miss the first, here’s one we made earlier; if you miss the second, rest assured we will be revisiting the subject at a variety of venues around the country over the next few months; keep an eye peeled.


The September/October issue of History Ireland is out on Monday 1 September. Enjoy!
