As my First World War research winds down for The Passions of Patriots (my major work-in-progress), I’m gearing up for the Irish history research I need to do for the story.
I’ve been posting reviews of the First World War history books and videos in my research library at the novel’s eponymous companion site. For the Irish history phase, I’ll be posting reviews here, to this blog. I’ll revisit many of the resources I consulted when I wrote Irish Firebrands, but my first topic of study will be an Irish historical personage to whom I referred obliquely in that novel:
Then a stray memory surfaced … about a nineteenth-century Irishman of sixty years, who married a young woman and then begot eight children, the youngest of whom, born when his father was seventy-five, grew up to be a leader in the new Irish Free State.
Mícheál Ó Coileáin (16 Oct 1890 – 22 Aug 1922)
