At the end of the interview he stood up and said:

"The last thing I want to say is that I will pray tomorrow that whoever did it will be discovered, and that the whole thing will be like an open book.
I rely on you then to clear my name. I have no confession to make, only that I didn't do it. That is all. I will pray for you and be with you if I can, whenever you, [Mr. Seán MacBride], Mr. Nolan-Whelan and Mr. Timoney are fighting for justice'.

Last words of Harry Gleeson to Seán MacBride
Tuesday, 22 April 1941

Travels of William Smith O'Brien in Europe and the Wider World 1843 to 1864
William Smith O’Brien is known in Irish History as the stand-offish if conscientious leader of the failed 1848 Rising. Recently discovered journals prove him a writer of exceptional interest. Both before and after his four and a half years penal exile in Tasmania, O’Brien proved a passionate European traveller and analyst of the conditions and policies of numerous countries. Not till the arrival of Garret FitzGerald in the 20th century was any Irishman so conversant with European political, religious and social developments. Both before and after his free pardon in 1856, O’Brien acted as an unofficial ambassador at large for his country, being honourably received by the President Buchanan of the United States of America, Marshal McMahon, later President of France, and Pope Pius IX.

The book covers tours in Tasmania –Australia 1849-53; Ceylon/India/Egypt 1854; Spain/France 1854; Brussels 1854-5; France/Italy 1855-6; Greece 1856; West of Ireland 1858; USA and Canada 1859; France/Spain/ Portugal 1860; France/Austria/Hungary/Northern Italy 1861; Italy/France 1862-3; Turkey/Romania/Poland 1863.

At the Anvil: Essays in Honour of William J. Smyth
At the Anvil: essays in honour of Professor William J. Smyth was launched on 5th December 2012. This important collection of essays, by academics from Ireland and overseas, was assembled to highlight the enormous contribution made by Professor Smyth to third level education in Ireland and Irish society in general over a working career of unremitting endeavour.
At the Anvil brings together the work of three demographic cohorts of geographers – some, like Professor John Andrews, who were important influences on Smyth’s early thinking, others who were contemporaries and colleagues, and finally a younger group of researchers, a number of whom were his former students. Many of the essays build on topics which have been worked on by Willie Smyth, others extend to issues of broader concern to contemporary geographical studies in Ireland.
