Subtitle: a reprint of his 1797 paper

Author: Cox, Walter

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2008

ISBN: 978-1-874158-18-9

Contents: Walter Cox was one of the creators of the world. He created an Irish nation out of the chaos of Anglo-Ireland after the 1798 Rebellions and the Act of Union. The 'Protestant nation' of the 18th century fell into confusion. When its independent Parliament was taken away from it—when that Parliament was bribed by the Government into liquidiating itself—it left behind it several mounds of debris. Cox, through his Irish Magazine (1807-1815) breathed life into the biggest of these mounds—the Catholic mound. Read on…

Name: We're Red, We're Black

Subtitle: A Season behind the scenes in the Irish League

Author: Langhammer, Mark

Editor:

Category: Northern Ireland Collection

Publisher: Belfast Historical & Educational Society

Published: 2016

ISBN: 978-1-872078-27-4

Contents: Mark Langhammer’s new book “We’re Red, We’re Black – A season behind the Scenes in the Irish League” is a behind the scenes view of a season from the perspective of a football club board director. At face value, it is a month-by-month journey through Crusaders FC’s 2015-16 football season, from the close season in May 2015 through to retaining the Irish League in April 2016. But it’s not just a chronological whizz through the 2015-16 football season. It ‘stops off’ to record the Crusaders story of the past ten years, explaining how the tired, run-down, relegated and technically bankrupt Crusaders of 2005 became the Irish League’s representatives in the 2015-16 European Champions League. If you are looking for analysis of the football on the field this is probably not the book for you. Hopefully, however, it will tell you something about the culture, history, ways and foibles of Crusaders FC, a club owned and run by its fans. Enjoy the ride!

Name: West Cork's War Of Independence

Subtitle: A Discussion of Peter Hart's work and related matters

Author: Meehan,Niall

Editor: Lane, Jack

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2017

ISBN: 978 1 903497 88 3

Contents: TOM COOPER - GERRY GREGG – EOGHAN HARRIS - CAL HYLAND - BARRY KEANE - SIMON KINGSTON - NIALL MEEHAN - EVE MORRISON - JOHN REGAN - DONALD WOOD PLUS MEDA RYAN AND PAT MULDOWNEY Table of Contents Page The Outcome of the first West Cork History Festival by Jack Lane Three Southern Star letters on West Cork History Festival Four Southern Star letters on An Tost Fada (‘The Long Silence’) History Festival to screen amended documentary (Southern Star report) An Tost Fada – four Irish Times letters (plus two unpublished) Fifteen Southern Star letters on Peter Hart & Kilmichael Ambush Meda Ryan response to Eve Morrison, 2014 History Ireland letter Jack Lane responds to Sunday Independent columnist and An Tost Fada scriptwriter/presenter Eoghan Harris Pat Muldowney on exposure of Peter Hart’s bogus ethnic cleansing statistics by Dundee historian, Dr. John Regan Barry Keane on Peter Hart’s Irish heritage

Extracts: The serious discussion on Peter Hart's work occurred outside the First West Cork History Festival, in the pages of the Southern Star and elsewhere. This is a collection of the correspondence from that paper and other items that deal in detail with the ‘legacy issues’ arising from Professor Hart’s work. The first letter, from Tom Cooper, generated 22 more items of correspondence and a news report, between 27 May and 26 August 2017 on three topics: 1. Three letters, from Cooper and Simon Kingston, on the festival; 2. Four letters, from Cooper and from Gerry Gregg on his and Eoghan Harris’s documentary, An Tost Fada (‘The Long Silence’), plus one newspaper report; 3. Five letters each from Eve Morrison and Niall Meehan, three from Barry Keane, and one each from Donald Woods and John Regan, on Peter Hart, Tom Barry and the 28 November 1922 Kilmichael Ambush. In addition, due to Barry Roche in the Irish Times reporting RTÉ’s re-editing of An Tost Fada, Tom Cooper had a letter published on his role in that decision. It occasioned three replies, to which the Irish Times denied Cooper a response, which we publish here. We also publish an important 2014 letter from Meda Ryan to History Ireland, in response to a commentary on Ryan by Eve Morrison (in a review of Pádraig O Ruairc’s book, Truce). This is by far the most useful outcome of the Festival despite not being part of it.

Name: What is a Nation?

Subtitle: By Ernest Renan and Joseph Stalin

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: General

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2015

ISBN: 978-0-85034-132-4

Contents: What is a Nation? by Ernest Renan The Nation, by Joseph Stalin Epilogue by Brendan Clifford Introduction drawing out the implications for the Two Nations Theory and other matters, by Brendan Clifford. A nation is a historically evolved mixture of things: race, religion, language, economic interest, geographical factors, dynastic influence. All of these things, or some of them, are blended, in various proportions, through historical events, to produce the sense of communal affinity between very large numbers of people that is called nationality. The blend is the nation. Its reality is in the blend. It is not reducible to any one of its components, though one or other of the components may be particularly emphasised in particular phases of national development. Ireland is a nation; so is Northern Ireland: when NI became systematically less British in its political life, it did not lose the collective sense of itself as a distinct social body with a will to survive, even in conflict with Britain. This is why in 1969 Brendan Clifford described the two nations as two Irish nations. At the time he published the two nations analysis of the Northern situation, together with extracts from the two classic works on nationality from opposite sides of the European political spectrum (Renan and Stalin) to show what he meant by a nation, This pamphlet reproduces these extracts, with a new introduction by Brendan Clifford and an epilogue discussing the relationship between class and nation, war in an imagined world, invented nations, the nation as historic territory, Charles O’Conor, and sectarianism.

Name: Whither Northern Ireland?

Subtitle:

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor:

Category: Northern Ireland Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2010

ISBN: 973 1 874157 23 3

Contents: What is Northern Ireland? Where did it come from? Where is it going?

If it was a state it need not be going anywhere. It might just exist, and get on with the business of governing itself. But it is not a state, it never had been a state; and it is extremely improbable that it ever could be a state. In a world composed of states there is therefore an inevitable question mark over it.

Name: William O'Brien And His World

Subtitle:

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2010

ISBN: 978-1-903497-64-7

Contents: Account of a Talk given at Kanturk Trades Union Hall, Feile Duhallow, 2008.

The difficulty in saying something about William O'Brien lies in knowing what is generally known about him. And, if little or nothing is generally known about him, to know how much is known about the world in which he lived and acted, as a context in which he might be presented.
.
My impression was that he was a forgotten figure, even amongst historians in the Universities, and that mention of his name was likely to bring to mind another man of the same name, William O'Brien, James Connolly's associate who built the Transport Union into a mass organisation during the years after Connolly was killed. But if our William O'Brien was remembered anywhere, it should be in North Cork—in Mallow where he was born, and in Kanturk where the independent, Anti-Redmondist national movement which he launched had its source in Land and Labour.

Name: Willowbrook - a flawed Eden

Subtitle: A memoir of growing up in Millstreet, Co. Cork

Author: O'Brien, Jim

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2013

ISBN: 978-903497-7 7-7

Contents: Jim O’Brien was evacuated with his brothers from London during WWII and sent to live with their aunts at Willowbrook House near Millstreet. Willowbrook was a smaller version of an Irish ‘Big House’ and belonged to one particular Pomeroy family, now extinct. The diverse Pomeroy clan has a long, distinctive, ancestry going back to Norman times. Of them it could be said that like many other originally Norman families they became, Hiberniores ipsis Hibernis, more Irish than the Irish themselves.

Jim paints a very vivid picture of his experiences at the house, of the people who owned it and lived there and of those whoworked there. He also gives entertaining pen-pictures of the local ‘characters’ he got to know. He describes them ‘warts and all’ and they are thereby made credible and unforgettable. Willowbrook is now empty and uninhabited and may soon be just a memory but thanks to this memoir its inhabitants and the locals of three generations ago will live on.

Name: With Michael Collins

Subtitle: In The Fight For Irish Independence

Author: O'Connor, Batt

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2004

ISBN: 1 903497 17 5

Contents: Batt O'Connor of Brosna, Co. Kerry was one of Michael Collins' inner circle in the War of Independence. His recollections of that War read more like an adventure story than history. All the more surprising, therefore, that his memoir has been out of print since 1929. Following lively public interest in Sean Moylan's Memoirs, launched by Éamon Ó Cuív, the Aubane Historical Society is making a further account of the War of Independence available—this time from a participant who felt pressed to take the pro-Treaty side in 1922. However, while Moylan's story is firmly centred in North Cork, Batt's features Dublin. Mrs. O'Connor's recollections, which she lodged in the Bureau of Military History appear here for the first time. An Introduction by Brendan Clifford takes issue with the view that the divisions among the Volunteers over whether to accept Lloyd George's Treaty ultimatum really constituted a 'civil war' in the true sense of the term. Both sides were pledged to the Republic—the division was merely over whether to make a partial submission to the Crown under the British Prime Minister's threat of 'terrible and immediate war'.
