In the summer of 2014, and later again in spring 2017, a scandal arose in relation to the Tuam Children's Home in Galway in Ireland. It was alleged that the nuns who looked after children there from... More > 1925-61 had maltreated them. This third edition book casts a critical eye on the local history methodology underpinning the scandal. It examines in detail: the mapping of the burial sites; the statistical traps overlooked; the widely misinterpreted 2017 statement of the Mother and Baby Commission; the Oral History of the Home; and the vexed questions of money and food. Extensive appendices also expand on the recorded history of the Home, the personnel employed there, three detailed eyewitness accounts, a comprehensive history of the Tuam workhouse, and a detailed analysis of the 2019 government report on the Home. It also contains a valuable foreword by Fr Paul Churchill.< Less

The 8th amendment of the Irish Constitution: “The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to... More > respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.” This famous, much loved, clause in the Irish constitution was repealed on the 25th of May 2018, allowing the passage of one of the most liberal abortion laws in Europe in a traditionally pro-life country. This book seeks to answer the conundrum of why this happened, in particular why there was such a large Yes vote overturning decades of pro-life activism in the country. It centres on the questions of media bias, feminism, anticlericalism, and the subtle but serious political effects of the rise of atheism in modern Ireland.< Less

As more and more scholars come to realise that the accepted story of William Shakespeare is untenable, this book tries to unmask the covert Irish influence on his work and the remarkable career of... More > William Nugent, the only Irish candidate ever put forward for Shakespeare. It includes the full text of many original documents on Irish history, from the Reformation to the 1641 Rebellion. “That in these lines I could as well express, As in my soul I do admire her beauty, Or that great Daniel, fit for such a task, This wonder of our Isle, had seen, and heeded, Then should his glorious muse, her worth unmask, And he himself, himself should have exceeded; Then England, France, Spain, Greece and Italy, And all that th’Ocean from our shores divideth, Would over-run their bounds, and hither fly, To find the treasure, that our Ireland hideth, But best is, that we never do disclose it, Since known but of ourselves, we shall not lose it.” – Richard Nugent “Cynthia” (London, 1604)< Less
