  • The literary, artistic representation of the struggle for Home Rule and its main leaders
  • Irish sovereignty and direct democracy within supranational economic and/or political institutions:
  • The European Union (the Treaty of Lisbon referendums, Brexit and Northern Ireland, subsidiarity and self-government…)
