From blonde hair, black box - black box being an aeroplane flight recorder and 'box' also being slang for vagina. Not quite in touch with reality, in a dreamy state. [Merseyside use] "A Modest Proposal for preventing the children of poor people in Ireland from being a burden on their parents or country, and for making them beneficial to the public" -J The Rendezvous and Other Stories. Because of these failures to cut across linguistic boundaries, the roles of England and France are exaggerated over those of the colonized regions. It can even be asked whether the entire premise of postcolonial studies is valid: that examining these literatures can give voice to formerly suppressed peoples The Fall of the Shogun. By July 1915 he was in contact with physical-force nationalists and, in early 1916, he was co-opted onto the IRB’s Military Council. By this time Connolly’s rhetoric had begun to resemble that of Patrick Pearse. On one occasion, for example, he wrote that ‘no agency less potent than the red tide of war on Irish soil will ever be able to enable the Irish race to recover its self-respect. .. we recognise that of us, as of mankind before Calvary, it may truly be said: “Without the shedding of Blood there is no Redemption.”’ Connolly’s biographers have struggled to reconcile such rhetoric with his atheistic Marxist background The Accidental Mother. Measures were also enacted to give Ireland a self-sufficient economy. In 1937, the second Irish constitution went into effect abolishing the Free State and restoring the name Ireland (Éire) as the title of the new independent democratic state, featuring a president as head of state, a prime minister leading the government, and a two-house legislature All About Camilla.

Wisely this remark is prefaced by ‘I cannot expect readers always to agree with my arguments’. Given that in Ireland and Britain the legitimisation of nations and states has long been contested it is unlikely this or any book on nationalism is going to receive consensual endorsement. And while Richard English’s combative approach forces reconsiderations about what nationalism in Ireland might mean, equally, on almost every page, Irish Freedom provokes critical reaction in response to the methodologies employed to force those same reconsiderations Love and Devotion. Singer Martin Tomlinson and guitarist Patrick Constable create unruly anti-songs, angry unravellings of beatbox stuffer, garage noise and invective Postscripts.

Casement was charged with treason and executed in August 1916 The Easter Rising was intended to take place across Ireland; however, various circumstances resulted in it being carried out primarily in Dublin. On April 24, 1916, the rebel leaders and their followers (whose numbers reached some 1,600 people over the course of the insurrection, and many of whom were members of a nationalist organization called the Irish Volunteers, or a small radical militia group, the Irish Citizen Army), seized the city’s general post office and other strategic locations A Jealous God. They install centrist monologic utterance as the norm.

While acknowledging that the British press never spoke with one voice, de Nie nevertheless downplays the significance of the differences between the approaches of various newspapers, and instead emphasises underlying similarities. He argues for the existence of 'a number of dominant trends, opinions, and beliefs that crossed or blurred partisan lines and collectively informed a "British" view of Ireland and the Irish people during the nineteenth century' (p. 28) Heroes (Longman African Writers).

More power to backbench Members of Parliament - In the British political system, the party in Government has considerably more power in the legislature than the Opposition parties and in all the political parties the whips have considerable power over backbenchers. Ordinary MPs could be given more influence by measures such as more independent and stronger all-party Select Committees, more unwhipped votes (especially during the Committee Stage of Bills), more support for Private Members' Bills (those initiated by backbenchers rather than Ministers), more power to scrutinise Government spending, and a new power to subject ministers to confirmation hearings Friends at Thrush Green (Thrush Green series Book 10). The rumours that she had been working on the ultimate catalogue raisonné of Bacon’s paintings for years could explain the sheer multitude of books on the artist around her desk Celebrations at Thrush Green. Under the Treaty, Northern Ireland could opt out of the Free State and stay within the United Kingdom: it promptly did so. In 1922 both parliaments ratified the Treaty, formalising independence for the 26-county Irish Free State (which renamed itself Ireland in 1937, and declared itself a republic in 1949); while the 6-county Northern Ireland, gaining Home Rule for itself, remained part of the United Kingdom The Burning Boys. Bountiful harvests meant the people were generally well fed but there were very few employment opportunities. The Act of Union had resulted in Ireland's economy being absorbed by Britain Cloudstreet: Picador Classic. I won't tell if you won't, though, because this is an awesome song. Grab a pint and drink one for Finnegan and his pretty corpse. This song was huge in Ireland 24 years ago. This might be the best version yet of the Da Vinci's Notebook song The Point of Return: a novel. A Pushcart and Forward nominee, she has won several prizes, most recently the Gregory O’Donoghue International Poetry Prize, 2015.

Originally from Missouri, USA she has been living in Ireland for over a decade, and is a citizen of both countries The Twisted Root: A William Monk Mystery. The Act of Union had resulted in Ireland's economy being absorbed by Britain. Although free trade now existed between the two countries, England generally used Ireland as a dumping ground for its surplus goods. Rapid industrialization in Britain also brought the collapse of the Irish linen and woolen industries in the countryside with their less efficient handlooms Cutting the Sweetness. This is why it is likely to be of interest not only to people interested in the poets who are discussed in it, but also to anyone who is interested in thoughtful, readable criticism. By engaging with ideas from a wide range of literary critics, Redmond shows how the divergent trends in literary criticism can be brought into productive conversation with each other At the Still Point (Virago Modern Classics).
