              Press, politics and revolution: newspapers and journalism in Cork City and County, 1910-1923
               

              Press, politics and revolution: newspapers and journalism in Cork City and County, 1910-1923 (Hardback)

              By McCarthy, Alan

              Newspapers played a key role in shaping and reflecting public opinion during the Irish Revolution, 1910-23. County Cork was home to Skibbereen's Southern Star and Skibbereen Eagle, and Cork city institutions the Cork Examiner and Cork Constitution, along with the Cork Free Press.... These papers were joined by a number of fascinating but short-lived radical papers like Terence MacSwiney's Fianna Fail. This book is not just concerned with the journalistic output of these papers and their diverse political outlooks, but also their staff, engaging with newsboys and editors alike. This inverts typical historical approaches which traditionally use newspapers primarily as historical sources, whereas this study showcases them as historical forces. Of course, these papers operated during an incredibly violent time. This book highlights how editors and journalists at this time did not sit on the sidelines during the conflict but were centrally involved and experienced very real danger; newspaper owners and employees were threatened, attacked and shot. This book examines the experience of these papers, and the consequential, and often devastating censorship and suppression they experienced. Engaging with the leading issues of the day and acting as a microcosm of the conflicts and disputes that engulfed Ireland as a whole, the newspapers of Cork city and Skibbereen entered the revolutionary decade with opposing views and many enjoyed a rivalry that added a spice to their coverage. This is the story behind these storytellers.

              The introduction of English institutions to Ireland after the arrival of the Normans, and the close administrative ties that existed between the two countries during the rest of the middle ages resulted in a wealth of archival sources on both sides of the Irish Sea. This book ser...ves as a practical introduction to these sources, in both manuscript and printed form, from the 12th to the 15th centuries. The institutions, central and local, which produced the records are described and the records placed in their administrative context. Advice is given on the scope and limitations of the surviving sources, and special attention is paid to the existence of substitutes for the records destroyed in 1922 in the Four Courts fire. In addition to the records of central and local government, ecclesiastical records in Ireland and abroad are dealt with, as are the private records of major Anglo-Irish families. Information is provided on the existence of guides, lists and indexes which facilitate access to unpublished material in various record repositories.

              Leading medieval scholars discuss the impact of English imperialism and the ways in which English and wider European cultural norms were transmitted outwards towards Ireland, Scotland and Wales from the Norman Conquest onwards. Subjects examined include, in the field of language ...and literature, the resilience of the English language in the face of the forced imposition of French culture by the Normans; national identity in the chivalric literature of late 14th century Scotland; foreign apologues in the bardic verse of late medieval Ireland, and, in history, Irish perceptions of the Normans from the mid-11th to the mid-12th century; external influences on Welsh saints cults; native Welsh colonization in Ireland; the survival of monarchy in Scotland in the face of English assault; and the anomoly that was the medieval Lordship of the Isles.
