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.
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.
