200 Magazine – News from Co. Dublin and Tralee, 1823

Find out what was happening in the UK and Ireland two centuries ago in March’s edition of 200 Magazine, which reports the news from then as if it is happening now, but in the language of today and with added 21st century commentary. This month: how Daniel O’Connell was celebrating a win for a pro-emancipation candidate in the Co. Dublin by-election, what Irish journalist Michael Joseph Quin witnessed in Madrid as Spain prepared for invasion by France, and how a soldier went on the rampage in Tralee. March’s 200 and the previous eight editions are available at

(6)     Co Kildare – New Book – The Reverend Psychopath

see link below

The objective of emailing you this is to bring you the story of the children in the orphanage in the nineteenth century in Kildare, Ireland.  I hope by bringing you this story the children get a voice and we hope they get heard soon along with a potential forthcoming plaque to be at a site, in their memory.

I attached a Press Release and a video trailer.  The building in the video is not the orphanage.  I also attach the following links to the published non-fiction book I wrote on The Reverend Psychopath which can be ordered through. Currently they will be on other online websites globally. I hope to deliver some paperback books to a few local bookstores.

The genre is crime/religion and based around the orphanage.

(7)  Co Armagh – AE Russell Festival

Along with being a great Artist AE was known as the father of three generations of Irelands great writer including Yeats , Joyce Patrick Kavanagh and a young Australian Pamela Travers who he mentored and gave the Idea for Mary Poppins. Interestingly his anniversary coincides with the Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement as he was a famous pacifist who was read by Ghandi . We will have American Academics as well as Native Dakota people and many great lectures. The launch of the festival will be the first non contentious parade in Lurgan on the first of April, no its not an April fools joke, but we do intend to use that as a theme. On the Sunday the second April we will have an ABC Area Literary tour. Festival runs from the 1st April to the 10th of April.

200 Magazine – News from  Dublin and Co. Cork in 1823

The first edition of 200 Magazine, which reports the news from two centuries ago as if it was happening now and in the language of 2023, is online. You can read it and check out the previous six free editions (packed full of news and illustrations from Britain and Ireland in 1822), and sign up for email alerts when new monthly editions are online by going to

The January 1823 edition reports on the ‘bottle riot’ at Dublin’s Theatre Royal in December 1822 and the fall-out from that. (Marquess Wellesley, the Lord Lieutenant, says it was a plot by Orangemen to kill him.) There’s also news of storms in Dublin killing two, and the sinking of the merchant vessel Weare off Ballycotton in Co. Cork (25 dead) in what has been an awful winter for shipwrecks off our coasts. Questions are being asked about whether it is time for some sort of national sea rescue organisation, and in the magazine’s ‘hindsight’ section from 2023,  200 reports on the upcoming bicentenary of the RNLI and its lifeboat service.

If you have any bicentenary-related activity in 2023, please tell 200’s editor, John Evans – he’s at

General Liam Lynch was a key figure in the Irish Revolution and remains one of the most celebrated IRA leaders of his era. His republicanism was shaped both by his upbringing in Limerick and by the aftermath of the Easter Rising. By the time of the War of Independence, Lynch was in command of the IRA’s Cork No. 2 Brigade and masterminded some of the most important actions against British forces, such as the Fermoy arms raid and the daring kidnapping of British General Cuthbert Lucas.
Adamantly opposed to the Anglo-Irish Treaty, regarding it a betrayal of the Irish Republic, Lynch became chief of staff to the IRA men who opposed the settlement. Yet he remained determined to find a compromise with former comrades, which left him little prepared for the outbreak of the Irish Civil War.
Lynch would not live to see the end of the bitter conflict – he was mortally wounded following a dramatic pursuit by Free State forces across a mountain in south Tipperary – yet his controversial leadership of the IRA during the eleven-month Civil War continues to shape his legacy today.
In this long-awaited and fascinating new biography, the first in nearly forty years, historian Gerard Shannon delves deep into a wide array of archival material to create a detailed, nuanced portrait of a hugely significant and influential figure in Irish history.Paperback • €19.99 | £16.99 •  352 pages •  234 mm x 153 mm • 9781788558211

Offer to Speak to Irish History Societies
Mark Davies is  an Oxford local historian and author, booked to speak to The  Old Dublin Society and at the Maria Edgeworth Festival at Edgeworthstown in early May 2023. I would love to add some more engagements while in Ireland, and will be  available to speak to local societies  on a request basis. Some possible relevant topics are: early Irish hot-air balloon ascents; the Irish influence in Oxford (literary and historical); and the historical background to ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ (including Lewis Carroll’s Irish family links). I have given talks on a range of Oxford topics for some 20 years and have spoken previously to societies in Cork and Ballincollig (where I have ancestral associations), and Kinsale, Edenderry and Dublin. I have an interest (ancestral) in visiting Co. Monaghan, but am happy to explore elsewhere! and if you wish to avail of my offer  email me at:

(4) New RTE Television Current Affairs Programme

Hello folks , I got a call from Jack Good about a new TV programme as outlined below, he was a very amiable person and I agreed that I would pass the word around in case anyone might be interested. See mail below for details

How are you?

Jack Good here from RTÉ One television. Great to speak with you there.

It would be amazing if you could please share information about the programme.

I’m working on an exciting new RTÉ Current Affairs programme, Upfront with Katie Hannon, launching in January. We’re actively looking for people, ordinary citizens who have an interest in politics, an interest in how the world works, who are passionate and engaged about current affairs issues.

I’d love to talk to anyone who would be interested in coming in as part of the live studio audience. And just to say, talking isn’t in anyway a commitment to coming on the show, I just want to chat and tease out the areas they’re interested in and whether they would be willing in principle to take part in a live studio programme.

If anyone is interested, I would be grateful if you could pass on their contact information. Alternatively, I can be phoned on 0871362385 or emailed at

                                 This notification is for the attention of Member Societies

We are looking at updating some membership details and would appreciate any help you can give.

Federation Journal:
The list of members in the Journal consists of the society name, a contact person and a postal address. These would have been supplied by the society and is important particularly when we are posting copies of the Journal out to societies. In some cases this information can change and we may not know about it. We are asking societies to check their details in the Journal and if any corrections are needed to let us know. We can then make these changes in the new upcoming Journal.

Federation Website
We have recently reintroduced the list of member societies on our website as this information can be very useful if societies want to contact each other. The list entails the society name, an e-mail address and a contact name.   We would again ask each society to check their details on our website and confirm or otherwise that these details are correct.
This way we can offer a better service to you, our fellow members and the wider local history fraternity who may wish to make contact.

Replies should be sent to Larry Breen, e-mail  Mob  097 98 1551 if you have any changes you would like to make.
