This book examines the history of journalists and journalism in twentieth-century Ireland. While many media institutions have been subjected to historical scrutiny, the professional and organisational development of journalists, the changing practices of journalism, and the contribution of journalists and journalism to the evolution of modern Ireland have not. This book rectifies the deficit by mapping the development of journalism in Ireland from the late 1880s to today. Placing the experiences of journalists and the practice of journalism at the heart of its analysis, it examines, for the first time, the work of journalists within the ever-changing context of Irish society. Based on strong primary research - including the previously un-consulted journals and records produced by the many journalistic representative organisations that came and went over the decades - and written in an accessible and engaging style, The Fourth Estate will appeal to anyone interested in journalism, history, the media and the development of Ireland as a modern nation.

A ground-breaking history of the twentieth century in Ireland, written on the most ambitious scale by a brilliant young historian. It is significant that it begins in 1900 and ends in 2000 - most accounts have begun in 1912 or 1922 and largely ignored the end of the century. Politics and political parties are examined in detail but high politics does not dominate the book, which rather sets out to answer the question: 'What was it like to grow up and live in 20th-century Ireland'? It deals with the North in a comprehensive way, focusing on the social and cultural aspects, not just the obvious political and religious divisions.

Professor Dermot Keogh’s Twentieth-Century Ireland, the sixth and final book in the New Gill History of Ireland series, is a wide-ranging, informative and hugely engaging study of the long twentieth century, surveying politics, administrative history, social and religious history, culture and censorship, politics, literature and art. It focuses on the consolidation of the new Irish state over the course of the twentieth century. Professor Keogh highlights the long tragedy of emigration, its effect on the Irish psyche and on the under-performance of the Irish economy. He emphasises the lost opportunities for reform of the 1960s and early 70s. Membership of the EU had a diminished impact due to short-term and sectionally motivated political thinking and an antiquated government structure. Professor Keogh looks at how the despair of the 1950s revisited the country in the 1980s as almost an entire generation felt compelled to emigrate, very often as undocumented workers in the United States. Professor Keogh also argues that the violence in Northern Ireland from the late 1960s was an Anglo-Irish failure which was turned around only when Britain acknowledged the role of the Irish government in its resolution. He extends his analysis of the twentieth-century to include a wide-ranging survey of the most contentious events—financial corruption, child sexual abuse, scandals in the Catholic Church—between 1994 and 2005.

De Valera Fianna F il and the Irish Press

De Valera  Fianna F  il and the Irish Press Author Mark O'Brien

The relationship between the Fianna Fail party and the Irish Press, both founded by Eamon de Valera in an era of political revolution, has been much misunderstood. Blamed for causing the bitter civil war and isolated in its aftermath by the political establishment, de Valera took what seemed the only course of action and founded his own political party and newspaper. In the aftermath of independence, the process of nation building began with both Fianna Fail and Cumann na nGaedheal (later Fine Gael) competing to influence the process as much as possible. The Irish Press gave voice to de Valera's vision of Ireland and Irishness and passionately defended it from its detractors. It also provided him with a means to counter hostility in the media, that hostility orchestrated primarily by the Irish Independent and the Irish Times. The author gives a survey of the war of words between the two parties and their media allies, and charts the role of the Irish Press in bringing Fianna Fail to power. He explores the possibility of the Irish Press being de Valera rather than party-dominated and analyses the steady disintegration of the relationship between the party and the paper as the company found itself gradually alienated from the paper's readers, a modernising Ireland and a changing Fianna Fail party.

A New History of Ireland, from the earliest times to the present, is a harvesting of modern scholarship on its subject. It consists of nine volumes by over a hundred contributors, mainly historians but including historical geographers and specialists in other such related disciplines aslanguage and literature, the visual arts, and music. Seven of the volumes are text, and deal with politics as well as economic, social, and cultural history. The other two volumes contain reference material.This, the seventh text volume to appear, concludes the text volumes of A New History of Ireland, of which the first (volume III: Early Modern Ireland 1534-1691) was published in 1976. Volume VII, covering the period 1921 to 1984, completes the series' coverage of Irish history from prehistorictimes to the twentieth century. It opens with a character study of the period, followed by fourteen chapters of narrative history, covering both parts of Ireland. There are additional chapters on the economy, literature in English and Irish, the Irish language, the visual arts, music, the massmedia, education, emigration and immigration, and the position of women from the 1860s to the 1980s. Two surveys of 'Land and People', c.1926 and c.1983 are included , and the volume ends with an extensive bibliography for the period 1921-84, covering both Northern Ireland and the Republic ofIreland. The two ancillary volumes contain reference material.The period covered by this volume is of major significance in the history of modern Ireland. It witnessed the coming into effect of the partition (following the Government of Ireland Act of 1920) and the establishment, in the wake of the war of independence and the 1921 Anglo-Irish treaty, of theIrish Free State. From this point on, although the Free State did not formally become a republic until 1948, the political evolution of the two parts of Ireland followed separate paths. The period ends with the New Ireland Forum of 1984, which reflected the willingness of the Irish Republic tolook in new ways at future relations between all the people of the island, and which was followed by the historic Anglo-Irish agreement of 1985. The twenty-five contributors to this volume, all specialists in their field, provide the most comprehensive treatment of these developments of anysingle-volume survey of twentieth-century Ireland.
