  • The Irish revolution
  • Protestantism in Ireland
  • Irish nationalism

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.
