Name: Irish Solidarity with Cuba Libre

Subtitle: A Fenian Eyewitness Account Of The First Cuban War Of Independence

Author: O'Riordan, Manus

Editor:

Category: General

Publisher: SIPTU

Published: 2009

ISBN: 978-0-9555823-1-9

Contents: Midway through Cuba's first War of Independence (1868-78), as war correspondent for the New York Herald, the Fenian leader James J. O'Kelly (1843-1916) brought the Cuban fight for freedom to world attention.

As a contribution towards internationalist solidarity and understanding, this SIPTU publication wishes to commemorate both the centenary of its own foundation in 1909 and the 50th anniversary of the 1959 Cuban Revolution.

Primarily consisting of O'Kelly's own vivid and dramatic eyewitness reports from Cuba, it is introduced by an extensive biographical essay from SIPTU's Head of Research, Manus O'Riordan, in which he details and critically evaluates the lengthy political career of James J. O'Kelly: as Fenian leader, as Home Rule MP, and—above all else—as the foremost 19th century exponent of Irish internationalist solidarity with liberation struggles in both Cuba and Africa.

Name: Joe Devlin: What Now?

Subtitle: His Confrontation Of The British Parliament after the 1918 Election

Author:

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2007

ISBN: 978 1 874158 19 6

Contents: Joseph Devlin, Member of Parliament for West Belfast, was one of the triumvirate of Irish Home Rule leaders from the beginning of the 20th century until 1918; the other two were John Redmond and John Dillon. Redmond was the nominal leader of the Party—the Chairman. Dillon was the guardian of its ideology. Devlin was the creator and leader of the body which gave at least a sembalnce of internal political or spiritual life to the Party which dominated the Irish electoral scene but refused to take part in the Government of the state—the Ancient Order of Hibernians.

This booklet consists of an Introduction by Brendan Clifford, Devlin's speech in the House of Commons following the general election of 1918, a short chapter on The Grammar Of Anarchy, some material of Devlin's Election Campaign Against Sinn Féin in 1918 and a chapter on William O'Brien.

Name: Karl Lueger And The Twilight Of Imperial Vienna

Subtitle: The Life And Work Of A Municipal Socialist And Precursor Of Christian Democracy

Author:

Editor: Clifford, Angela

Category: German-Irish Collection

Publisher: Belfast Historical & Educational Society

Published: 2002

ISBN: 1 872078 07 9

Contents: Karl Lueger's achievements were unique. He discredited the Austrian Free Marketeers in the closing decades of the 19th century, built a popular base for himself, established a new kind of European politics, and modernised and socialised the City of Vienna in his years as Mayor, 1897 to 1910 (when he died). Yet he is hardly known outside Austria. The reason for this is that after 1945 he was travestied into a forerunner of Adolf Hitler by slipshod historians and propagandists of the victorious powers. In fact Hitler, who lived in Vienna during his Mayoralty, admired him as a social reformer but rejected his social philosophy because it was not racist. It would be as reasonable to represent the influential British economist, J. M. Keynes, as Hitler's forerunner on the ground that Keynes's economic theories were first put into effect in Nazi Germany. When Nazi Germany took over Austria, Lueger's successors in the leadership of the Christian Social party, which he founded, were arrested and sent to Concentration Camps along with the leaders of the Social Democracy. In the generation after the Second World War the stability of Western Europe was chiefly the work of the Christian Democracy, of which Lueger's Christian Social movement was the pioneer. This book, composed of extracts from a number of biographies of Lueger translated by Philip O'Connor, seeks to introduce Mayor Lueger to the English-speaking world—which has plenty to learn about community politics. An introduction by Angela Clifford takes up perceptions of Lueger in the context of her own Viennese and Palestinian background, and Councillor Mark Langhammer—who also has links with a lost Middle Europe—supplies a Preface.

Name: Kilmichael Ambush Commemoration

Subtitle: Address On 94th Anniversary

Author: Lane, Jack

Editor:

Category:

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2014

ISBN: 978-1-903497-85-2

Contents: Anyone who takes an interest in our history will know that there is an ongoing debate about the War of Independence and it is appropriate that this Ambush has been central to this debate. The Ambush has been the subject of detailed discussion and every minute and every blow of the Ambush has been analysed, researched, interpreted and misinterpreted ad nauseam. You might say there has been a concerted attempt to ambush Kilmichael and the reputation of Tom Barry but it has been repulsed.

Extracts: The fact is that the War of Independence has been fought all over again in recent years, without guns this time, fortunately, but a no less significant war because of that. It is just a different kind of war. In the context of this new ‘war’ events such as this commemoration here and similar commemorations elsewhere have a vital importance because they present opportunities for putting the record straight about the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence. Opportunities for doing so are few and far between these days. You will very rarely find such opportunities in forums such as the media, in academia, in the educational system and in 'history books' and in mainstream political parties. And when the mainstream politicians commemorate such events they give the distinct impression that they are simply going through the motions. In those forums you will get everything from outright condemnation of the Rising and the War of Independence to an acknowledgment of these events but with all sorts of reservations, qualifications and regrets and a negative tone throughout. The end result is to seek to give us a bad conscience about the whole thing.

Subtitle: A Monument and its History

Author:

Editor:

Category: Irish collection

Publisher: Kilcorney Historical Society

Published: 2014

ISBN: 978-1-903497-81-4

Contents: Published on the occasion of the unveiling of the monument at Mushera near Millstreet, Co. Cork, on Holy Saturday, 19th April 2014. The world knows of Brian Boru very well. The current Millennium Anniversary celebrations of the Battle of Clontarf have brought him and his achievements to our attention once again. However, if the event we are commemorating here today had not happened, Brian Boru would have been but a footnote in our history and the Battle of Clontarf might never have happened.
