Research Interests

Research interests
20th century European and Irish history with an emphasis on:
  • political history,
  • military history,
  • intelligence studies,
  • WW1,
  • WW2,
  • Cold War,
  • European integration,
  • Irish-continental European relations,

Project: "Ireland's foreign children, 1945-1950"
(manuscript & research in progress)
An additional humanitarian operation to Ireland's sending of supplies to Europe between 1945 and 1950 was the welcoming of continental children. Around 1,100 children from France, Germany, Austria, Central Europe (Jews) and Poland (cadets from the Polish forces based in the UK) stayed in Ireland in the immediate post-war years in order to recuperate. The study seeks to analyse their stay in the country and how the Irish authorities and people dealt with them within a comparative European context.

Project: "Ireland during the Cold War, 1945-1990"
(manuscript & research in progress)
This project seeks to analyse Ireland's role during the Cold war, i.e. anti-Communism, domestic and foreign intelligence activities, strategic importance, media, civil defence, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, East-West trade, human rights etc.

Project: “East German intelligence activities against the British forces in West Germany and West Berlin, 1949-1990”
(research in progress) 
I have begun a new research project concerning East German intelligence activities against the British forces forces based in West Germany and West Berlin during the Cold War. The federal Stasi Records Archive in Berlin has to date sent me over 3,000 photocopies of original material.
