    Irish history is often reduced to the conflict between Catholics and Protestants: this book tells a different story. In a wide-ranging social history that includes analysis of rural disturbances, landholding patterns, family formation, systems of education and local response to the famine, Kyla Madden reveals that the relationship between the Catholics and Protestants in Forkhill, south Armagh, was both layered and complex - and defies a simple sectarian explanation.
