Re: Cork City Military Show 2013.

... If you are planning on coming to the show as a re-enactor or a trader you need to book in so we can plan space. The Gaol is a tight space and it’s already pretty full.

Re: New book on the Rising

... the NI Government assumed responsibility for policing and security; far more eminent writers than me (e.g. A.T.Q. Stewart, Alan Parkinson) have already told the history of unionism, but it wasn't my intention to re-travel ground previously covered in others' work. By the same token, if you want ...

Re: Historical Revisionism and the Irish War of Independence.

... all other trials and hardships that went with taking the stance they did, out of the noblest of motives, in most cases, I can hardly doubt. I’ve already explained how I feel about Casement, but out of all those terrible years the man above all others, probably, for whom I have the deepest sympathy ...

Re: Historical Revisionism and the Irish War of Independence.

... as the results of many years of his research, when a good deal of it (minus the pointless JCB) was contained in Gerard Murphy's book, which has already been heavily criticised in terms of accuracy. Another historian has denounced O'Halpin's claims on the programme as folklore . Professor O'Halpin's ...

Re: Help and Info needed

... for 14th century. Cheers Stephen, the Rogart reference is a pretty good one so no long drooping sleeves which was pretty much what I thought.

Re: Historical Revisionism and the Irish War of Independence.

... long-winded review of Terror in Ireland. I fully stand over my understanding of our 15-minute conversation (as recorded on my phone bill). As I already told Justine McCarthy of the Sunday Times, when I rang Mr Young I gave him my name and telephone number. I also told him I was an historian, ...
