Article in History Ireland: ‘St Edmund: Patron Saint of Ireland?’

The July and August 2020 edition of Ireland’s history magazine, History Ireland, features my article ‘St Edmund: Patron Saint of Ireland?’, which outlines the almost incredible story of English attempts to turn St Edmund into Ireland’s patron saint in the late Middle Ages. The article serves as an introduction to my new book Athassel Priory and the Cult of St Edmund in Medieval Ireland, which was published by Four Courts Press in February.
