BIO

I am Lecturer in Irish History at UCD with special responsibility for the decade of centenaries. My research centres primarily on British and Irish political history and the history of Ireland during the decade of the Irish revolution and the First World War. I am currently researching the history of UCD during the Irish Revolution. I lecture on memory and commemoration as well as on nineteenth and twentieth century Irish and British history. I have previously lectured on the Irish revolution, the Northern Irish Troubles, and Irish Studies at UCD as well as having worked on the Royal Irish Academy’s Documents on Irish Foreign Policy project (2013). My recent publications include, "Irish Days, Indian Memories: V. V. Giri and Indian Law Students at University College Dublin, 1913-1916" (Irish Academic Press, 2016) and "The Irish Parliamentary Party at Westminster, 1900-18" (Manchester University Press, 2016). In 2017, "The Irish Parliamentary Party at Westminster, 1900-18" was awarded the Special Commendation Prize in the National University of Ireland Publication Prize in Irish History. I am actively involved in commemorations activities at university, national, and international levels and I am Director of UCD's MA in Public History. Current doctoral students: Shane Browne, 'Moore’s Military: Understanding Maurice Moore and the National Volunteers in Irish History, 1914-1918'
