Hi! Thank you for visiting my home page. On my Web site, you'll find some information about me as well as the complete texts of a few articles that I've written relating (mainly) to Irish history or archaeology.

Famines and the environment: The case of the Great Irish Famine. This looks at the value of examining the environmental impact of historical famines to identify particularly vulnerable habitats in regions where famines may occur again, to determine how the environment repairs itself over a long period of time, and to develop ways of minimising the ecological damage caused by such famines (thereby possibly reducing the risk of famine in the first place).

More material will be added as time goes by, so check out this site on a regular basis!

My friend, Pat McInerney's home page, mysteriously called Outport (http://members.tripod.com/~outport/), once included a far out discussion on robotics (from the point of view of robotics nerds), but the site hasn't been updated for a few years....
The Wildlife of Waterford City & County. This site (http://gofree.indigo.ie/~meara/index.htm) provides information about amateur naturalist Michael O'Meara and details of his research into all aspects of the natural history of the county and city of Waterford in south-eastern Ireland.
For those with an interest in ancient/pagan spiritual traditions, the Gatherings of the Tribes (http://www.OutoftheDark.com/Gathering/) may repay a visit. Note also this site's well organised lists of links (http://www.OutoftheDark.com/Links/).
