Research Statement

My principal research interests are in twentieth-century Irish history, especially the Irish revolution. I have recently completed a history of the Irish hospitals' sweepstake lottery (1930-87) [ The Irish Sweep: a history of the Irish Hospitals Sweepstake, 1930-1987 (University College Dublin Press, 2009), which examined the role of gambling in Ireland and the financing and development of Irish hospitals in the twentieth century.

I am beginning a new research project on revolutionary veterans in independent Ireland, which looks at the experience of activists from the Irish revolution period in the Irish state after independence. At present I am working on an article on the award of military service pensions to these men and women.
