From Plantation to Peace Process
Ebook edition available
This comprehensive history charts the major events that have shaped county Fermanagh from the days of the Ulster Plantation. Margaret Urwin looks particularly at the recent conflict in Fermanagh, detailing every death. Using official, declassified British and Irish government documents, the book examines how the Irish state co-operated with its British counterpart on border security. It also explores the validity, or otherwise, of claims of ‘ethnic cleansing’.
Margaret Urwin has worked with Justice for the Forgotten/Pat Finucane Centre for many years, advocating for families of victims of the Northern conflict. She is a graduate of The Open University and holds an M.A. in Local History from NUI, Maynooth. She is the author of several works, including A State in Denial: British Collaboration with Loyalist Paramilitaries
