|Title:||Book Review: Sport and Society in Victorian Ireland: The Case of Westmeath||Authors:||Rouse, Paul||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10191||Date:||31-Jul-2008||Online since:||2019-04-29T10:50:02Z||Abstract:||Until the last decade, scholarly work on the history of sport and leisure in Ireland was most noted by its absence. Historians of modern Ireland almost entirely ignored the importance of sport as a historical phenomenon, preferring to concentrate on matters of church and state. The result of this was the publication of highly-regarded volumes which focused on the development of modern Irish society, but almost entirely ignored sport.||Type of material:||Review||Publisher:||School of Advanced Study, University College London||Keywords:||History of sport and leisure; Ireland; Evolution of Irish sport; Westmeath; GAA||DOI:||10.14296/RiH/issn.1749.8155||Other versions:||https://www.history.ac.uk/reviews/review/679||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
