How the Irish won the West by Myles Dungan( )

Here is the full story of the Irish immigrants and their decedents whose hard work helped make the West what it is today.

A fascinating and entertaining look at the history of the American West, this book will surprise many and make every Irish American proud

The captain and the king : William O'Shea, Charles Stewart Parnell and late Victorian Ireland by Myles Dungan( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He has been described as 'that obnoxious individual' and 'the traitor we expected him to be', while also being hailed as 'one who has insight into so many details of Irish affairs'. It is difficult to disagree with any of these assessments of Captain William Henry O'Shea, not even the latter paean that comes from his own pen. Although his ambition did not burn with sufficient heat and his vindictiveness knew too few bounds, he was nonetheless of considerable significance to the late Victorian period in Irish history. Most of his import derives from his role in the felling of the tallest tree in the Irish political forest, Parnell, by citing his as co-respondent in the divorce of his wife Katharine. Myles Dungan's biography makes no attempt to rehabilitate O'Shea's reputation, but it throws light on some of the more obscure aspects of his personal and political life: his bizarre alliance with elements of the Irish Republican Brotherhood; the extent of his awareness of the relationship between his wife and Parnell; and his alleged complicity in a Tory plot to discredit the Irish leader."--Publisher's description

Mr. Parnell's Rottweiler : censorship and the United Ireland Newspaper, 1881-1891 by Myles Dungan( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analysis of the contest between Irish nationalist newspapers and the British government during the riotous decade of the 1880s--focusing in particular on the Parnellite newspaper United Ireland. Dungan examines how the British government made extensive use of censorship to combat that newspaper's campaign and he draws on fascinating archival records which suggest that United Ireland itself may have engaged in similar censorial practices against rival organisations which espoused views at variance to its own
