Language, Resistance and Revival
Feargal Mac Ionnrachtaigh
Language, Resistance and Revival tells the untold story of the truly groundbreaking
linguistic and educational developments that took place
among Republican prisoners in Long Kesh prison from 1972-2000.
During a period of bitter struggle between Republican prisoners
and the British state, the Irish language was taught and
spoken as a form of resistance during incarceration. The
book unearths this story for the first time and analyses
the rejuvenating impact it had on the cultural revival
in the nationalist community beyond the prison walls.
Based on unprecedented interviews, Feargal Mac Ionnrachtaigh
explores a key period in Irish history through the original
and ‘insider’ accounts of key protagonists in the contemporary
Irish language revival.
