Modern Irish history particularly the Irish revolution 1912-32 and contemporary Northern Ireland; the development of the state in post-partition Ireland; the history of the Irish post office 1912-27.
My research interests lie mainly in the development of democracy in the Irish Free State and the role of labour in the Irish revolution. I am interested in popular participation in the revolution. I am also interested in the effects of partition on politics and identity and the development of the state in Northern Ireland in relation to Labour and popular politics.
I am currently working on a history of the Irish post office in the period of 1912-27.
