The famine in Ulster : the regional impact by Ulster historical foundation( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume corrects that distortion "the Famine didn't happen in Ulster." Ulster was indeed spared what a local newspaper called "the horrors of Skibereen," but nonetheless, the severity of the famine, particularly in the winter 1846-7, is all too apparent in each of the nine counties. 95 inmates of Lurgan Workhouse died in one week in February 1847; and 351 people queued to get into Enniskillen Workhouse in one day. What was done to limit the tragedy? Contentious issues such as the effectiveness of government relief measures, the response of local landlords, and the role of the churches are all assessed
Loyalism and Labour in Belfast : the autobiography of Robert McElborough, 1884-1952 by Robert McElborough( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert McElborough was a Belfast trade unionist of little education, who spent most of his life living in the Sandy Row district and working on the tramways and in the gas industry. An active organiser in two loyalist trade unions, he fought proudly 'on the workers' side for wages and conditions as a descendant of an Ulster Scot. This selection from his autobiography provides a unique record of Protestant working-class life, and a trenchant commentary on the mistreatment of workers by their masters. It also chronicles the tensions between English union bosses and Ulster trade unionists, and McElborough's support for Ulster-based unions uncontaminated by either red or green influences. The complexities of Belfast labour history are clarified in the editors' introduction and notes. Subjective, sometimes unreliable, yet authentic, McElborough's narrative is an essential source for study of both loyalism and labour in Belfast."--BOOK JACKET

Exiles of '98 : Ulster Presbyterians and the United States by Peter Gilmore( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the fascinating story of Ulster Presbyterians who departed for America around the time of the 1798 rebellion. Whether high in the councils of the United Irishmen, an ordinary oath-swearing member of the ranks, or an unaffiliated critic of existing political and social circumstances, an ultimately untold number of Ulster's Presbyterians became associated with revolutionary currents in the final years of the eighteenth century. Many so involved -- or so accused -- took exile in the new United States. And whether personally known to Thomas Jefferson or a distant admirer, whether well-known preachers or scholars, lawyers or farmers or artisans, the Presbyterian exiles of the 1790s and early 1800s transformed their new homes, shaping and reshaping the politics and religion of America" -- Back cover

The famine in Ulster = An gota mór in Ultabh( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Famine didn't happen in Ulster' has been one of the most unchallenged myths in recent Irish history. This volume corrects that distortion by giving an account of how each of the nine counties fared during 'this great calamity'. Ulster was indeed spared what a local newspaper called 'the horrors of Skibbereen'. Nonetheless, the severity of the famine for much of the population, particularly in the winter of 1846-7, is all too apparent in each of the counties. Ninety-five inmates of Lurgan workhouse died in one week in February 1847; 351 people queued to get into Enniskillen workhouse in one day, emigration continued at an increasing pace and fever hospitals were full"--
