Name: The Veto Controversy

Subtitle:

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1985

ISBN: 0 85034 030 6

Contents: This book consists of materials produced in the course of a fierce and prolonged dispute within Catholicism in Ireland concerning the mode of appointment of Bishops. The outcome was that for a century and a half Irish Bishops have been directly appointed by Rome. This was not the usual mode of appointment in Catholic countries. It made Ireland the only country, where the Church was a major social influence, in which the state had no say in the appointment of powerful spiritual princes who wielded extensive temporal authority. The triumph of anti-Vetoism gave Rome the lever by use of which it transformed the Irish Church in its own image at the moment when the modern nationalist movement was beginning. And that transformation had a profound effect on the nationalism. Included is the pamphlet by which Thomas Moore, the author of Moore's Melodies, attempted to convince the Catholics of Dublin that a Government Veto on the appointment of Bishops was necessary to the preservation of national life in the Irish Church. The "find" of the book is the Rev. Charles O'Conor, a forgotten Catholic priest whose Vetoist books make him, in the opinion of the compiler, the best Irish historian?and also something of a prophet. Here is the pre-history of modern, Catholic-nationalist Ireland: which is of considerable relevance now that nationalist Ireland is striving for a more liberal mode of development. 203 pp.

Name: Thomas Russell And Belfast

Subtitle:

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor:

Category: United Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1997

ISBN: 0 85034 080 2

Contents: This book constructs a history of Belfast from its foundation to the 1790s, as the setting for a biography of the remarkable outsider who played a leading part in its affairs during the United Irish decade. Thomas Russell, "The Man From God-Knows-Where", was vividly remembered in Belfast until the middle of the 19th century. The onset of the religious-nationalist conflict, which has preoccupied the city ever since that time, caused him to be forgotten, because he did not fit the categories of either side. And that is a very good reason why he should now be rediscovered. Brendan Clifford bring the Belfast of the 1790s alive by use of the columns of the "Northern Star", and by use of Russell's public and private writings—including his hitherto unpublished Jotters. It includes Russell's "Letter To The People Of Ireland" (1796), and parts of his "Lion Of Old England" satire, from the United Irish paper the Northern Star. This Second Edition, revised and extended, includes previously unpublished material from the Correspondence between William Drennan, who is sometimes described as the founder of the United Irishmen, and his sister, Martha M'Tier, concerning the consequences of Russell's participation in Robert Emmett's Rebellion; and also a Gaelic Elegy, published in Belfast, on Russell's earliest colleague there, Dr. James MacDonnell of the Glens. 124 pp. Illustrated. Index.

Name: Ton de Coro

Subtitle: From the civil war in Catalonia to Mauthausen Concentration Camp in Austria

Author:

Editor: Keenan, Joe

Category: Spanish Civil War Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2011

ISBN: 978-1-872078-15-1

Contents: At the heart of this pamphlet are the stories of two heroic Catalan soldiers who fought to defend Spanish democracy at the end of the 1930s.

The stories of Antoni Ibern y Eroles (Ton de Coro) and Antoni Roig y Llivi, as related to David Bassa and Jordi Robí and published in Memoria de l’Infern: Els Supervivents Catalans dels Camps Nazis, have been translated from the Catalan for us by Declan Doyle and Nell Epinat (working on an earlier draft by Zaida Picazo and Robert Dyas).

Their stories are not so much about the Spanish Civil War itself, but rather about the sequel which is much less well known.

They tell of how, among the many hundreds of thousands of refugees who crossed the Pyrenees to France, were soldiers who were prepared to fight on against Franco’s German allies.

Despite the atrocious, inhuman, conditions in the internment camps into which the refugees were flung by the French authorities, men like Ton de Coro and Antoni Roig were still prepared to assist, in the Foreign Workers’ Companies, against the German invasion.

Both were captured by the Wehrmacht, Ton de Coro and his comrades having been refused admittance on to the boats at Dunkirk. Both found themselves in the hell of Mauthausen Concentration Camp, where simple survival was the outcome of very many daily acts of courageous defiance.

Theirs was an anti-Fascist war waged in the midst of the very worst the Fascists could bring against them! And they won that war…

Name: Troubled History

Subtitle: A tenth anniversary critique of Peter Hart's The IRA and its Enemies (1998)

Author: Murphy, Dr. Brian P & Meehan, Niall

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2008

ISBN: 978-1-903497–46-3

Contents: Niall Meehan examines Peter Hart's arguments in the context of political pressures in Irish society affecting the writing of Irish history. In particular, he looks at the effect of violence in Northern Ireland post 1968. The threat of violence was used to inhibit intellectual inquiry in Southern Ireland. State censorship, perfected by Dr Conor Cruise O'Brien while a minister from 1973-1977, was accompanied by attacks on print media, on dissenting academics and on civil liberties. This, argues Meehan, helped to stabilise a new orthodoxy that privileged reframing the earlier Irish Troubles of 1916-21 as a religious or ethnic conflict. Within this new framework Peter Hart's research emerged and was uncritically applauded in 1998.

Meehan publishes for the first time an affidavit from the son of the last surviving participant in the Kilmichael ambush of November 28, 1920. He also publishes a newspaper report of the death of this ambush veteran. Peter Hart claimed to have interviewed an ambush participant anonymously one day later. In the affidavit it is claimed that Hart could not have interviewed the last surviving participant. The sole surviving IRA veteran suffered a stroke affecting his mobility and speech over a year prior to Hart's claimed anonymous interviews with two such veterans. Meehan pursues these and also newly discovered inconsistencies in Hart's account of sectarianism during the conflict. He attempts an explanation of why these deficiencies are ignored by mainstream Irish historians.

Brian Murphy examines the way in which Peter Hart's research on Cork during Ireland's War of Independence has been used to encourage the view that Catholic-Protestant antagonisms were a significant feature of the conflict. Murphy answers criticism of his research on British Propaganda in 1920 by David Leeson of Laurentian University, Canada. Murphy also examines Leeson's defense of Peter Hart. Murphy indicates the extent of significant Protestant support for Irish Independence. He takes issue with a recent Irish television documentary that pursued the Hart sectarianism thesis in another part of Ireland during the War of Independence.

Ruan O'Donnell, in his introduction, makes the point that 'the highly contentious nature of the revolutionary period has found an echo in the hostile tenor present in some of the debates between scholars. Questions of interpretation are inevitable in such dialogues and important issues have also arisen in relation to the reliability of certain classes of historical evidence. Something of the heat of these clashes stems, in all probability, from proximity to 'the Long War'. Connections between 1922 and 1998 are obviously more profound than the mere repetition of nomenclature and re-articulation of slogans but contemporary judgments on this issue must, as yet, remain tentative. It is to be hoped that a fuller and more nuanced grasp of Irish history will emerge from the new histories of the new Ireland.'

Name: Ulster Presbyterianism

Subtitle: The Historical Perspective

Author: Brooke, Peter

Editor:

Category: Northern Ireland Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1994

ISBN: 0 85034 074 8

Contents: Presbyterianism was established in Ulster on a firm organisational basis in the 1650s, under the protectorate of Oliver Cromwell. It was sufficiently strong to resist persecution after the Restoration of Charles II. It achieved a small degree of recognition by the state after the Glorious Revolution of 1689. It was, in a sense, a state within a state. Its Synods, Presbyteries and Sessions were courts in which cases concerning ministers and laymen could be heard. It exercised a rigorous discipline over its members. Its ministers and lay elders met regularly throughout the year to decide the affairs of the community. Congregations had the right to choose their ministers. All ministers had equal status and decisions were arrived at between them by majority vote. For two centuries there was a constant stream of controversial pamphlets relating entirely to theological disputes among Ulster Presbyterians, many of which had important political implications as well. This, then, was a highly organised community with a well-developed intellectual life, sharpened by continual debate. Such was their organisational and intellectual self-confidence that, at the end of the eighteenth century, a group of them, representing all shades of theological opinion, made a bid to seize power in Ireland in the name of French Revolutionary principles. This book examines the Ulster Presbyterian community over a period of more than three centuries. It shows how religion can contribute to the development of a sense of cultural and national identity. It therefore goes far towards showing how the Ulster Protestants have remained so troublesome for those in Britain and Ireland who like to think of Ireland becoming one people under one government, separate from Great Britain. 208 pp. Bibliography. Index. Chronology. Glossary Of Terms.
