The Queen of the Hearth with an introduction by Philip O’Leary

Written by Father Patrick Dinneen, this highly controversial, anti-feminist text serves as an insight into the ideas of a major Irish-Ireland intellectual on one of the most important political, social, and moral questions of his time. This intriguing work offers the original text preceded by a general introduction by leading Irish studies scholar Philip O’Leary.

Irish Homes and Irish Hearts with an introduction by Mary McAuliffe

Between 1864 and 1867 Fanny Taylor made many trips to Ireland and Irish Homes and Irish Hearts (1867) is an eye-witness account of her visits to the many Irish Catholic religious orders, including the Magdalene homes. While this is a relatively uncritical study of the Irish religious orders it remains a valuable source of information for mid-nineteenth-century Irish social and religious history.
