Overlooked in Irish History

studies_01.jpgThe Summer number of Studies has appeared, on the theme: Overlooked in Irish History. The basket of the overlooked holds two women (Nagle and Hayden), four men (Redmond, Sheehan, McCullough and Hobson), and two groups (Southern Unionists and Protestant identities). Because these were people of principle and some nobility, their vision has weathered the years surprisingly well. Earlier editors of Studies helped some of them to articulate their vision. Fergus O’Donoghue, increasingly well known not just as editor but as blogger, has helped a new generation of writers to articulate what has endured from these half-forgotten Irish, despite the frustrations and failures they suffered.
