A timely new edition of this ground-breaking history of the three Irish Divisions that fought in World War 1.

How the Irish won the West by Myles Dungan( Book )

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 83 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

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

11 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 59 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
If you want to know who we are : Rathmines & Rathgar Musical Society, 1913-2013 by Myles Dungan( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The R & R has been part of Dublin's cultural landscape for 100 years. Founded in 1913 - the year of the Great Lockout - it was socially as far removed from those turbulent events as possible. Its origin lay in the genteel middle-class and mainly Protestant township of Rathmines. Indeed one of its early leading figures was none other than William Martin Murphy, the unyielding leader of the Dublin employers and implacable enemy of James Larkin. From its earliest days, the R & R has been indelibly linked to the operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan, although - as Myles Dungan points out in this crisply written history - their repertoire has embraced many other composers including such luminaries of the American musical as Rogers and Hammerstein and Jerome Kern

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
