Irish migrants in Europe after Kinsale, 1602–1820
Thomas O'Connor & Mary Ann Lyons, editors
'The Irish in Europe Project is to be commended for progressing the work so effectively with such a fine set of essays.’ Brian Lambkin, Irish Theological Quarterly.
'Thomas O’Connor’s outstanding opening chapter to The Irish in Europe, 1580–1815 offers a full and satisfying historiographical overview of the literature on the Irish abroad and stands as a fitting introduction both to the remaining eleven essays in this volume and to the ten published in Irish Migrants in Europe after Kinsale, 1602–1820 …. Whatever the topic, each essay is carefully documented, with some authors uncovering new treasures from academic, commercial, ecclesiastical, provincial and private archives and others bringing fresh perspectives to more familiar material … Thomas O’Connor and Mary Ann Lyons are to be congratulated for bringing together in these volumes a new generation of historians, many of whom are working outside of Ireland, whose exciting and innovative research is transforming our understanding of many aspects of the history of the Irish abroad during the early modern period', Jane Ohlmeyer, Irish Historical Studies.
