I Want to Really Learn about Horses

Gillespie, T. J.
T.J. Gillespie, growing up in the county of Sligo on the west coast of Ireland, saw horses all around him and took them for granted. Some enchanted day, he knew he must learn more so, he listened and watched and read, and thought out the prevailing wisdom. He put theory to the test, seeing what worked, gathering experience and not sparing himself in the effort for perfection. He devised and presented a very popular series of Horse and Pony Management courses, under the County Meath VEC Adult Education scheme, thereby gaining insight into other owners' problems and points of view. Now, he shares his unique experience of working with horses in this easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide with illustrations and diagrams throughout

Why Did They Lie?: The Irish Civil War, the Truth, Where and When It Began

Kiernan, Jack
Where and when did the Irish Civil War begin? Most people, with any knowledge of Irish history, would be able to tell you that hostilities commenced with the sacking of the Four Courts in Dublin, towards the end of June 1922. However, most people would be wrong! That is the view of Jack Kiernan, who sets out to investigate the roots of a tragic and bitter conflict, that proceeded apace with the emergence of independent Irish statehood. Growing up in an Irish Midlands town and being taught Irish History at school, Jack Kiernan remembers being told by his teachers that "if anything of importance happened in Mullingar, it would have been recorded." Bullet holes remnants in the walls of prominent local buildings seemed to give lie to these bland assertions, as did the recollections of older neighbours, alluding to "the shooting of unarmed prisoners during the Civil War." What he only discovered, much later, was that events of, not just local but national significance had taken place in the town where he grew up. What’s more, they had been recorded, only to be buried deep within the archives – almost as if they had been deliberately covered up! The evidence that he reveals here, demonstrates that open hostilities between pro- and anti-treaty forces were already in place throughout the country, prior to the events in Dublin. Furthermore, gun battles took place in the town of Mullingar during the month of April 1922, resulting in deaths. Evidence also suggests that British forces, though officially withdrawn, may have fired the first shots that that set Irish against Irish and brother against brother. The events of the Irish Civil War (1922-1923) have cast a long shadow over Irish life. This book sheds important light on a dark chapter in Irish history; a contribution towards the debate that surely must accompany the centenaries of these events, which are now just around the corner.

Kiernan, Jack
Once again, Jack Kiernan carefully assembles the available evidence in a manner that lets the reader decide while, at the same time, leaving no doubt as to how he views the matter.
