The Catholic Church and the Northern Ireland Troubles, 1968-98 (Oxford University Press, 2019) provides an indispensable study of the role played by the Catholic Church during one of the most tumultuous periods of British and Irish history – the Northern Ireland Troubles – showing evidence which offers a radical new perspective on religious institutions as conflict mediators in the twentieth century.

Dr Niall Ó Dochartaigh will offer commentary on the book, followed by a few words from the author Dr Maggie Scull. Refreshments will be provided.

Dr Maggie Scull is an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at NUI Galway.
