A short history of Ireland by Seán McMahon( Book )

Ireland is news; since the IRA ceasefire in the autumn of 1994 she has become the focus of worldwide attention. Only now can one sense an international recognition of the complexity of Irish problems and the beginnings of understanding. The answer to Ireland's difficulties lies in the future, but that future cannot be understood without reference to the past, when the seeds of trouble were sown. This concise and even-handed account gives the history of Ireland since the earliest times. Based upon up-to-date research, the narrative covers all political, social and cultural issues of importance, right up to the autumn of 1995 with the visit of President Clinton and the end of the first year of peace in Northern Ireland

Sam Hanna Bell : a biography by Seán McMahon( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sam Hanna Bell was born in Glasgow in 1909 of Ulster emigrant parents. On the death of his father, a journalist, he was brought 'home' to Ireland at the age of seven to be reared in the Strangford Lough area of County Down, where his acclaimed novel of Ulster rural life, December Bride (1951), is set." "Sam Hanna Bell was also a legendary broadcaster. Working as a senior features producer with the BBC Northern Ireland region, he pioneered the collection and broadcasting of fast-vanishing folklore and folk music from remote country areas. He continued to write during this period and after retirement; his other novels are The Hollow Ball (1961), A Man Flourishing (1973) and Across the Narrow Sea (1987). In 1970 Queen's University awarded him the honorary degree of MA for achievement in the arts. He died in 1990." "This biography, based on Bell's personal papers and the reminiscences of family, friends and colleagues, is a fitting tribute to one of the giants of Ulster literature."--Jacket
