Quick overview “Catholicism needs another reformation…” A former priest, Brian Devlin provides ‘front-row seat’ details of the scandal that unravelled around the allegations against Scottish Catholic Cardinal Keith O’Brien. One of four whistle-blowers, Brian Devlin has made an effort to recount the story not from a place of anger and hurt but learning and change. The domineering style of governance and the dismissive and scornful attitude of the ecclesiastical hierarchy towards victims of the Church needs urgent reform.

Know Your Place : An Exploration of the Place Names of Ireland

O'Dochartaigh, Seoirse
9781786051400
Know Your Place: An Exploration of the Place Names of Ireland is aimed not at the academic but at the general readership. It is exactly what it says on the tin, an exploration, and not an all-embracing compendium. The author has selected a group of place names from each of the 32 counties – about 80 from each. It’s a very personal selection. For each, he discusses the anglicized name, the original Irish name and the meaning of the name. Alongside this are a smaller handful that required some further explanation. At the beginning of each county section, he also provides a paragraph or two on the formation of that county and how it came to be named.

The new novel about the transformative power of art, the weight of history and the strange connection we make with one another from the author of The Speckled People. Narrated in the voice of Joseph Roth's masterpiece Rebellion, Hugo Hamilton's stunning, formally inventive new novel tells the life story of that book, initially rescued from the Nazi book-burning in Berlin in May 1933.
