Life and Times Series

The Historical Association of Ireland Life and Times series was conceived over a decade ago to place the lives of leading figures in Irish history against the background of new research on the problems and conditions of their times and modern assessments of their historical significance. A new series in association with UCD Press offers a wider range of titles with a new format and fuller scholarly apparatus.
