Here’s an interesting thesis… March 10, 2014

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish History, Irish Politics, The Left.

Reactions in the West of Ireland to political change in Northern Ireland, 1968-1982. (MA: NUI Galway, 2013) by Gerard Madden. A genuinely innovative perspective on the conflict which is well worth reading in full – and a good healthy Bibliography too! Thanks to the person who sent the link and thanks to Gerard too.

… had a quick read of chapter 4, interesting stuff. Don’t know if the author knows this or not but both Ned and Irene King of Galway were elected to the first Southern-based subcommittee of the National H-Block/Armagh Committee (so too was Frank Stagg’s brother Joe.) A death notice in RSF’s paper (Republican Bulletin : Iris Na Poblachta, Issue 005, April 1987) noted that: “his comrades of the co galway h-block/armagh committees formed a guard of honour as [his …] remains … were brought from galway cathedral to rahoon cemetery”. — Stuart (author, “Smashing H-Block”)

… that death notice refers to Ned King

Any plans to publish- hard to take in all detail on screen

An article based predominantly on the first chapter of this thesis, which is no longer online, appears in the current issue of Irish Historical Studies.
