By examining the successes and failures of the Irish language revival Our tangled speech offers a comprehensive, insightful and thought-provoking look at the complex relationship between language and identity.
Presbyterians and the Irish Language
Presbyterians and the Irish Language by Roger Blaney, originally published in 1996, is the first to establish the rightful place of the Irish language in the Presbyterian heritage in Ireland. It traces the Presbyterian Irish-speaking tradition from its early roots in Gaelic Scotland through the Plantation and Williamite War periods to its successive revivals in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
