About[edit]

While I am a seasoned Apple Macintosh computer professional, my personal interest is as a Postal Historian specialising in Irish Postal history and Aerophilately of Ireland for the last 25 years. My particular interest is in civil postal censorship of Irish mail by both the British and Irish authorities during The Emergency.

For my sins I act as webmaster for several philatelic societies because I believe in providing as much quality educational information to fellow philatelists and postal historians.

Two Irish history writing Pet peeves[edit]

It really annoys me when people who should know better use the word Eire when they should use Éire. My second issue is when writers use the term United Kingdom, which nowaday refers to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, when they are talking about Ireland's membership, pre-1922, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. These are specifically and legislatively distinct and different enities and should be refered to correctly within their time period.
