I am a 3rd year History student from the University of St Andrews, currently on a Study Abroad programme to University of Oslo, Norway! 

My research analysed the words and phrases of key documents of 1910s Ireland, and used these to evaluate the wider ideologies of Nationalism and Unionism, particularly concerning individual experiences of the ideologies.

My research proved the value of speeches and literature to the historian in uncovering wider society. Determined to build upon this research, I have created a website. This will function as an online archive for speeches and literature and offer my research as an interpretation to aid in understanding. I hope that this will be an accessible and beneficial tool for those interested in Irish history. You can access the website here: https://worldchangingwords.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk/
