Senior Lecturer in Political Science Bonnie Weir has an article on the Irish Central website entitled “Frankie Quinn: from revolutionary to Irish poet.”


“Perhaps unsurprisingly, poetry is the expressive core of Irish republicanism and has played a crucial role in communicating the principles and aspirations of the republican struggle to the rest of the world.
Now, when both the vision of a united Ireland and the history of the struggle for self-determination are contested, a new book of poetry offers a basis for understanding the nuances of Irish Republicanism.”
