6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Archbishop Walsh was the most publicly visible ecclesiastic in the Irish Church in the last quarter of the nineteenth and the first quarter of the twentieth century. In his many books and frequent letters to the newspapers he ranged over a wide area. Among other issues, he wrote on politics, economics, monetary matters, education, social questions, language, music, canon law, and theology." "Walsh's most important achievements were in his contributions to the consolidation of the modern Irish political system between 1885 and 1891: to land reform - the cumulative effect of the Irish Land Acts between 1885 and 1910 owed much both to his analytical mind and his remarkable tenacity; and to education in its different levels but especially to his part in solving the University question." "Walsh's other important contributions were in initiating and promoting the arbitration of labour disputes, in promoting the revival of Irish language and culture, the promotion of music (a life-long passion), and in the development of Irish Historical studies through his persistent promotion of research into the lives and background of the Irish Martyrs. These varied achievements, taken in their entirety, were quite astounding. But his essential greatness is to be found in his determined quest for equality, without which, he understood, there was no dignity, or justice, or real freedom for the Irish people. -- Publisher description

Bishop Edward Thomas O'Dwyer of Limerick, 1842-1917 by Thomas J Morrissey( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Holy Cross, Co. Tipperary, in 1842, Edward Thomas O'Dwyer became bishop of Limerick in 1886 - a position which he was to hold for over thirty years. For most of that time he was a thorn in the side of the hierarchy, and he acquired among the Irish people an unenviable reputation as a 'Castle' bishop. Even so, he played a major role in improving primary education, in resolving the University question, and as a leader in workhouse reform." "In his final years he helped to change the course of Irish history. In 1916, when the population was cowed following the execution of the leaders of the Rising, O'Dwyer wrote from Kilmallock his public letter to General Maxwell in defence of two of his priests, in which he denounced Maxwell as a murderer and stirred the whole country to life. His subsequent famous speech when the Freedom of Limerick was conferred on him gave an episcopal approval to the spirit of national resistance and influenced the East Clare election of 1917. O'Dwyer became a national hero, de Valera quoted his speech at the hustings, and his name was joined to those of the dead 1916 leaders in popular ballads."--Jacket
