Transit by Bernard Share( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two men meet in an airport men's room sometime in the early 1990s in the Arabian Gulf. From this meeting, they proceed to get a bit drunk on bad liquor, discover a magical hidden room, get transported back to the Ireland of the late 1940s and '50s, rummage through memories of their days at Trinity College (though they apparently never knew each other), and fumble about like Laurel and Hardy trying to make a degree of sense of what's happening (or did happen) to them. As oblique and deliciously Irish as Joyce and Beckett, and drawing upon the time warps of Flann O'Brien, Bernard Share has composed an hallucinatory and comic romp through Ireland past and present."--Jacket
In time of Civil War : the conflict on the Irish railways, 1922-23 by Bernard Share( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Irish railways struggled after the impact of the 1948-18 conflict and the War of Independence. The Civil War brought them to the brink of economic disaster. Today it is difficult to appreciate their importance at the time. As virtually the sole means of distribution of goods and public transport, their survival or destruction occupied a crucial role in the Civil War." "This day-by-day narrative, from records of the time, is the first account of how the Civil War affected the railways. It is a picture of divided loyalties, death and destruction but also of courage and resourcefulness irrespective of political allegiance or conviction. Isolated communities, deprived of a railway service, were close to starvation; railwaymen obliged to witness or participate in the destruction of their means of livelihood; attackers halted in their endeavours by a priest on the station platform - this is a human as much as an economic and political chronicle. It throws light upon a neglected but significant element in a struggle which should never have been allowed to happen." "During the writing of this book, glass plates recording some of the destruction suffered were discovered in the archives of Iarnrod Eireann. A selection of these, supplemented with others, provides a visual accompaniment to a story all the more vivid for the matter-of-fact manner in which events were set down."--BOOK JACKET

Naming names : who, what, where in Irish nomenclature by Bernard Share( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bernard Share's new book is in two parts. The first is a discussion of placenames, personal names, institutional names and brand names. He traces the changing patterns and fashions in the naming of things and places in Ireland, starting with the name of the island itself. It is Ireland in common speech, Eire on official documents, and Erin and the 'ould sod' in sentimental ballads. It has had a dozen other names throughout history. The small part of the island that is still part of the United Kingdom is officially Northern Ireland; Ulster to the Unionists; the Six Countries or 'the North' to the Nationalists; and British-occupied Ireland to the Provisional IRA. The neighboring larger island is constantly getting confused between England and Britain. The two islands together are sometimes called 'these islands' but never The British Isles, at least not when you're in the Republic, or should that be the Free State, or Southern Ireland?" "The second part of Naming Names is a dictionary . Organised on a standard A-Z basis, it glosses with illustrative quotations from a wide variety of sources, such names as Aer Lingus, Celtic Twilight, Clonakilty Wrastler, Lambeg, Mount Melleray, Navan Man, NIPPLES, Old Mister Brennan and Pee."--BOOK JACKET
