I hold BA, MA, and LLB degrees from National University of Ireland, Galway, and a PhD (2015) from Trinity College Dublin. Following a spell in the National Museum of Ireland, I returned to Trinity for an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship, 2015-2016. I took up my current post in Hertford College in October 2016.

The Irish revolution
Protestantism in Ireland
My research focusses on the Irish nationalism and Irish Protestantism. My particular interest lies in Protestant nationalists: that minority of individuals who rejected the unionist politics typical of their co-religionists, and joined separatist organisations. I am also interested in the Gaelic Revival, architectural policy in twentieth-century Ireland, and anything related to County Cork.
