  • Cattle have been the mainstay of Irish farming since the Neolithic began in Ireland almost 6000 years ago. Cattle, and especially cows, have been important in the life experiences of most Irish people, directly and/or through legends such as the Táin Bó Cuailnge (The Cattle- raid of Cooley). In this book, diverse aspects of cattle in Ireland, from the circumstances of their first introduction to recent and ongoing developments in the management of grasslands - still the main food-source for cattle in Ireland - are explored in thirteen essays written by experts. New information is presented, and several aspects relating to cattle husbandry and the interactions of cattle and people that have hitherto received little or no attention are discussed. Michael O'Connell is Professor emeritus at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) where he has been involved in research, teaching and administration for over four decades. Fergus Kelly is a Senior Professor emeritus in the School of Celtic Studies, Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. His main academic interests are in early Irish legal and social history. ​James H.

  • This volume is focused on the Roscommon module of the Medieval Rural Settlement Project. This is a preliminary publication mainly examining the issues of sources and methodology. In focusing here on the area of North Roscommon, the Discovery Programme is attempting to advance an aspect of Irish medieval rural settlement studies that has been largely neglected by archaeologists: i.e. the study of the Gaelic lordships in the period after c.1170 AD.
  • This investigation considers the places on the Irish landscape where open-air Gaelic royal inauguration assemblies were held in the period c. 1100-1600. Specially designated inauguration sites played an important role in the political life of Gaelic lordships in later medieval Ireland. Gaelic ruling families often appropriated prehistoric ritual landscapes for their royal assemblies in order to attach the pedigree of a royal candidate to an illustrious past; such sites might be an alleged burial place of an eponymous ancestor or a legendary heroic figure, or an ancient landscape associated with renowned events. This study of their physical appearance, place-names, and geographical and historical contexts ranges over all the archaeological sites identified as inauguration places - enclosures, sepulchral mounds, natural places, ringforts and churches, and associated inauguration furniture in the form of leaca and stone thrones, basin stones and sacred trees. Irish royal assembly places and practices are viewed in relation to sites elsewhere in Britain and greater Europe, and the circumstances that brought about the ending of the Gaelic practice of inauguration are also considered.

  • This collection of nineteen short stories deals with murder, the supernatural, immigration, separation, relationships, love and life. While the stories are set mainly in rural Ireland some inevitably cross the Irish sea. They provide a glimpse of Irish life fast disappearing and range from dark comedy to poignancy. In 'Lady of the Lake' the peace and tranquility of a lakeside village is broken by the murder of a quiet if somewhat inquisitive stranger. The ticking of an old clock brings back childhood memories of a formidable old woman in 'Kate the Bush.' ​The short story 'The Homecoming' explores the relationship between a father and son against the background of immigration and advancing years. In 'A Grave Matter', Flaherty's pub is frequented by local drunkards, headers, wasters and anybody else who happens yo be passing by and has the misfortune to call in.
