Just a quick post to thank the Military History Society of Ireland and all of my fellow speakers at Saturday’s conference, jointly hosted by the Military History Society of Ireland and the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks.

There was an extremely high level of scholarship present and my thanks on the day go to Lar Joye for his technical support and an excellent paper and also to Ann Matthews, David Murphy and Steven O’Connor for excellent papers. Thanks also to the chair on the day, Pat McCarthy.

For those interested, I hope to post up my paper on Military Training of the Irish Volunteers, here shortly.

I am a PhD Student at the National University of Ireland, Galway. I am conducting research into links between wartime traumatic-neurosis and evidence of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder amongst British First World War veterans serving as Auxiliary Policemen in Ireland during the Anglo-Irish War 1919-1921. I have previously conducted research into local Irish Volunteer/Old IRA units in Munster as well as British responses to popular insurgencies in areas they administered. I have previously published a book on the British Counterinsurgency responses to the IV/IRA conflict in Ireland, 1919-1921, entitled 'Dublin Castle and the Anglo-Irish War: Counter Insurgency and Conflict.' I have also published papers on various aspects of that war and also on other insurgencies. I write a regular blog on those and other related matters, which can be read at https://eamonntgardiner.wordpress.com/ My research interests include Feminism and De-Colonialisation/Post-Colonialism, Insurgency, Police and Military Histories, Institutional Histories.
