Geography Publications History & Society Series

History & Society Series

Its most ambitious venture is the publication of a County History and Society series, which will endeavour to assemble a library of county histories for all of Ireland.

Each volume in this series, by incorporating the work of outsider and insider, builds up comprehensive insights into the respective study areas. The individual books comprise a collection of specialist essays arranged chronologically and based wherever possible on the entity of the county. The volumes are profusely illustrated with maps and photographs.

In the Shade of Slievenamon - The Flying Column West Kilkenny 1916-1921
This book deals with the events of 1916 and the War of Independence in Kilkenny and the borderlands of the county with Tipperary, is an enlarged and revised edition of The Flying Column West Kilkenny 1916-1921 published in 1987.

The new title is an acknowledgement that much of the action described in the book took place within sight of the storied mountain. It is a much bigger book with some 340 pages compared to 210 in the earlier publication, and there are 150 illustrations many of which have never been published previously. New material has been added and chapters dealing with 1916 in Kilkenny and the famous by-election of 1917, in which W. T. Cosgrave won a key victory for Sinn Féin over John Magennis of the Irish Party, give a national context to the story.

There are also important new chapters on the role of the Kilkenny People newspaper and its editor, E.T. Keane, in articulating nationalist opinion post 1916, the beginnings of Sinn Féin in Thomastown, and a list with biographical details of all those connected with County Kilkenny who lost their lives in 1916 and the War of Independence. The detailed accounts of the military engagements of the Flying Columns with British forces, at Hugginstown, Ninemilehouse, Friary Street, Garryricken and Knocknagress, remain as the core of the book.

Cavan History and Society
County Cavan in the north midlands of Ireland encompasses 193,500 hectares (478,148 acres) of land and water and is the nineteenth largest of
Ireland’s thirty-two counties. Its landscape is characterised by small rounded hills, known as drumlins, interspersed with lakes. The hilly northwest of the county hosts a number of international tourism attractions including the Shannon Erne Waterway - Cavan flows north as well as south - and the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark. The Geopark, which straddles the land boundary between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, is recognised by UNESCO to have an exceptional geological heritage.

This publication, the 23rd volume in the History and Society series, edited by Jonathan Cherry and Brendan Scott with series editor William Nolan comprises 29 Chapters on this wonderful county. It is a co-operative enterprise that brings together a range of specialists from within and without the county to present its story. All of them have endeavoured to strip away the layers of time and uncover the past in its multiple manifestations. It is the history of a specific bounded place
with its own latitude and longitude but it also contributes to the narrative of our island home.
