News: Óenach Reviews 11 (2021-22)

We would like to thank Professor Clare Downham, Liverpool of University, who very kindly took on the role of Editor of Óenach Reviews in 2019. Clare edited three volumes; the contents of the latest issue may be found below. Clare is now passing the baton back to us (Carrie Griffin and Emer Purcell). As is evident from the range of books, subject matter, and reviewers detailed below, she is leaving our review journal in excellent shape. Many thanks to Clare for her hard work on each issue and behind the scenes.
