Philip Orr’s New Perspectives – Politics, Religion and Conflict in Mid-Antrim, 1911-1914: Book Review and Website Launch


I have a new post on the Slugger O’Toole blog, reviewing a book (and accompanying website) by historian Philip Orr, New Perspectives: Politics, Religion and Conflict in Mid-Antrim, 1911-1914, published last year by the Mid-Antrim Museum.

Given Orr’s treatment of the Ulster Covenant, this post contributes to my series on the Ulster Covenant. The series will conclude this week with a post by my colleague at Trinity College Dublin at Belfast, David Tombs.
