Contents: "Enthusiastically wishing to help my country and responding to appeals by friends, I have written this vindication of the right of our kingdom, followed by a call to action", Conor O'Mahony wrote in 1645. His Argument Defending the Right of the Kingdom of Ireland, which provoked fierce controversy, was the first book written in favour of Irish independence. It was written in Latin, the main European literary language, and John Minahane has translated it here for the first time. 

O'Mahony, who was from Muskerry, Co. Cork, was educated in Spain and became an important Jesuit intellectual in Portugal.

In his introductory essay John Minahane explores the background and context of O'Mahony's book. He argues that the 1641 rising was essentially an attempt to restore the Gaelic civilisation, which English policy was working to destroy. It is shown that the idea of an effective, though not necessarily formal, independence of Ireland from England was very much in the air. The Irish position was weakened by deep-rooted conflicts, to which O'Mahony's Argument contributed.  His case for complete independence, and rejection of the Stuart monarchy, was violently rejected by the Kilkenny Council and was not supported by Eoghan Ruadh O'Neill, who was implicitly his candidate for king of Ireland. However, O'Mahony's Argument remains the first theoretical statement of the case for Irish independence in modern times.

Name: Around The Cork-Kerry Border

Subtitle: Recalling The Rambling House

Author: Cronin, Dan

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2008

ISBN: 978-1-903497-47-0

Contents: Dan cronin has long been known as a writer with a great knowledge of the heritage of the Sliabh Luachra area. He has always sought to share this heritage with interested people over the years in various ways but most by his writings.

Here he presents a collection of stories and historical sketches from his native Shrone and surrounding areas. It is a tribute to the people of his area, their knowledge, culture and resilience in the face of many difficulties. They are stories and experiences that have impressed and entertained him, and many others, and they give a real glimpse into a bygone age by someone who lived in it and became one of its narrators.

Dan has been actively engaged in many projects during his life. Perhaps the most important is the work he has done to make the historical significance of the City (Cathair Crobh Dearg), the Shrone area and the Paps better known and appreciated. Thanks largely to him the historic significance of the area is becoming better known and acknowledged in official circles. It is to be hoped that eventually it will be seen as similar to, and as significant as Tara, Tailteann, and Eamhain Macha.

Name: Belfast In The French Revolution

Subtitle:

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor:

Category: United Irish Collection

Publisher: Belfast Historical & Educational Society

Published: 1989

ISBN: 1 870278 00 1

Contents: "Belfast In The French Revolution" tells the story of the French Revolution by use of materials taken from the columns of "The Northern Star", the Belfast United Irish paper. An introductory chapter explains why Belfast was predisposed by its own history to indulge in a wholehearted and unanimous vicarious participation in French affairs, the like of which occurred nowhere else. The background to the Revolution is explained in a chapter on its philosophical antecedents?on "Voltaire and Rousseau". The story is carried from 1789 to 1794, with chapters on Mirabeau's attempted reform of the Church; the Girondins; the reform of the Calendar; and the year of Robespierre and Saint-Just. Also included is the full Northern Star account of the great Belfast Review and Celebration held on Bastille Day, 1792. 148 pp.

Name: Belfast Politics with Thoughts On The British Constitution

Subtitle:

Author: Joy, Henry & Bruce, William

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2010

ISBN: 978-085034-122-5

Contents: Henry Joy's Belfast Politics is impressive. In it he gives expression to the political ferment of Belfast and its hinterland iat a time of optimistic constitutional endeavour. Volunteers, United Irishmen, Catholic Committee—they all speak in this book. And they don't just declaim, they argue about reform. All agree that change must come: but should the franchise be deepened amongst Protestants, and should the Catholics be included in the Constitution and be part of the body politic?

Given the importance and vitality of Joy's Belfast Politics, it is curious to find that the present edition is the first full reprint since its initial publication in 1794.

Also included in this work are Strictures On The Test Taken By Certain Societies Of United Irishmen and articles by William Bruce, Thoughts On The British Constitution.

Brendan Clifford supplies and Introduction providing context, as well as an Afterword examining the reasons for the disappointing Northern turn-out for the 1798 Rebellion and the silence of Belfast during the passing of the Union Bill. Also reviewed is the attempt by former United Irishmen during the following generation to establish an independent Belfast University (of which Inst is a remnant).

A Postscript examines some recent contributions from Cambridge University to the re-writing of Irish history in the British interest.
