Overview

Irish affairs have been overshadowed by the British presence, and Anglo-Irish relations have usually been seen as central to Irish history. However, the wider continental influence on Ireland has been very considerable and has been unjustly neglected in the past. Dermot Keogh's book rectifies this situation by examining critically the connections between continental Europe and Ireland from the Treaty of Versailles and the influence of European Roman Catholicism to the formal declaration of the Irish republic. Ireland & Europe provides a valuable source for studying Irish political life during the first thirty years of independence.

A well-researched and well-written work on Irish foreign policy taken from official records. This is the study of Eamon de Valera and the central role of Irish diplomats in shaping foreign policy and making decisions which had a critical influence on the development of the state.
