‘[An] impressive volume comprising original articles by fourteen eminent scholars from Ireland and Quebec representing eight different disciplines (history, linguistics, literature, design and material culture, sociology, ethnomusicology, music and theatre) … This splendidly edited volume provides, through excellent scholarship, sharp critical analysis, and genuine inter-disciplinary dialogue, a broad historical and disciplinary scope, new insights and connections, as well as both an in-depth and overall view of history, culture and society. It is an exemplary, significant, and leading-edge contribution to Quebec, Irish and Irish Quebec studies’, Jane Koustas Canadian Journal of Irish Studies (2017).

‘Intellectual collaboration between scholars interested in Ireland and those interested in Quebec is a useful endeavour for two reasons … there are important parallels between the two societies, including, but not confined to, their struggles for self-determination and their common heritage of Catholicism. Second, these two similar societies have interacted with one another in various ways and continue to do so’, Garth Stevenson, Canadian Historical Review (Summer 2017).
