Patrick Geoghegan - Judging Dan: The fall and rise of the reputation of Daniel O Connell.

Title: Judging Dan: The fall and rise of the reputation of Daniel O Connell.

Dr Geoghegan (Trinity College Dublin) is an expert on the Anglo-Irish relationship in the late-eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as well as on the competing themes of constitutional nationalism and republicanism between 1782 and 1848. His acclaimed two-volume study of Daniel O’Connell completed his examination of the tensions and conflicts which emerged following the abolition of the Irish parliament. The first volume provided a new analysis of the winning of Catholic Emancipation in 1829 while the second discussed the attempts to repeal the Union which failed so dramatically in the 1840s.
