The city and county of Cork has long been associated with sporting prowess in every field. For the first time, the history and development of a host of major sports in Cork and its environs have been gathered together. From major spectator sports such as the GAA, soccer and rugby, to tennis, rowing, cricket and golf, Sport in Cork charts their beginnings and how they came to be organised as their popularity grew. O’Sullivan looks at developments in rules and finances, and the roles and behaviour of spectators, showing how these pastimes impacted upon and informed their localities. Finally the importance of the sporting press is examined, as the games developed, from the 1800s through to the mid 20th century.

Reprint of the sole edition. Nicholls [1781-1865] was a pioneering poor-law reformer and administrator. While Great Britain's Poor Law Commissioner he drafted the Irish Poor-Law Act (1832). One of the first to assert that relief bred a culture of dependency and a resistance to work, he advocated the abolition of relief except as a last resort. Includes sections on urban poor, workhouses, housing conditions, child labor, vagabonds etc. In addition to the present study, he wrote A History of the English Poor Law (1854) and A History of the Scotch Poor Law (1856). Like his other studies, this one relates the evolution of poor laws since the medieval era to economic, social and political history. Notably sophisticated works, they were held in high regard by Sir Leslie Stephen and F.W. Maitland.

Men and women who were born, grew up and died in Ireland between 1850 and 1922 made decisions - to train, to emigrate, to stay at home, to marry, to stay single, to stay at school - based on the knowledge and resources they had at the time. This, the first comprehensive social history of Ireland for the years 1850-1922 to appear since 1981, tries to understand that knowledge and to discuss those resources, for men and women at all social levels on the island as a whole. Original research, particularly on extreme poverty and public health, is supplemented by neglected published sources - local history journals, popular autobiography, newspapers. Folklore and Irish language sources are used extensively. All recent scholarly books in Irish social history are, of course, referred to throughout the book, but it is a lively read, reproducing the voices of the people and the stories of individuals whenever it can, questioning much of the accepted wisdom of Irish historiography over the past five decades. Statistics are used from time to time for illustrative purposes, but tables and graphs are consigned to the appendix at the back. There are some illustrations. An idea summary for the student, loaded with prompts for future research, this book is written in a non-cliched, jargon-free style aimed at the general reader.
