I am a Digital Repository of Ireland Postdoctoral Researcher working on the Letters of 1916 project at An Foras Feasa, NUI Maynooth. I was awarded a PhD in Modern Irish History from Trinity College Dublin in April 2014. My thesis was entitled ‘Defying the IRA: intimidation, coercion and communities in Ireland, 1917-1923’ and was funded by a TCD School of Histories and Humanities Postgraduate Studentship. In 2012 I published a biography of executed 1916 leader Michael Mallin as part of the O'Brien Press's '16 Lives' series. I am currently working on a monograph based on my PhD thesis for Liverpool University Press. I have taught modules on modern Irish history at Trinity College Dublin and UCD. Previously, I taught at second level and worked as a tour guide for the Office of Public Works. My research interests lie in the social and cultural history of modern Ireland and civilian experiences of irregular warfare. Recently, I have become interested in possibilities created by the practice of digital humanities and its integration with traditional research methods.
