Fearghal McGarry joined Queen’s University in 2002. He studied history at UCD and Trinity College. After graduating, he lectured at Trinity for several years, before moving to NUI Maynooth as a Government of Ireland Research Fellow. He has served as joint editor of Irish Historical Studies and on the editorial board of Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy Section C. He works on modern Ireland. Earlier publications, including studies of Ireland & the Spanish Civil War, the socialist republican Frank Ryan, and the fascist Eoin O’Duffy, explored interwar Irish Radicalism in a European context. More recent research has focused on the revolutionary period. He has written widely on the Easter Rising, including a recent collective biography of seven rebels associated with the Abbey Theatre.
