Do you have an authority for this change in the spelling of her name? PatGallacher 10:13, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Her name was definitely Katharine O'Shea. She has written a couple of books by that name and uses the spelling Katharine throughout. One of the books is 'Charles Stewart Parnell' published by Cassell in 1914. Callum Peterson

That's quite an important point, I wasn't previously aware that she wrote anything herself (another case of women's voices not being heard?) Although, if she wrote it in 1914, wouldn't she have used her then legal name of Katharine Parnell? PatGallacher 14:09, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

That is a good point. However, the book was first published in 2 vols. in 1914 by Cassell and later,in 1921, they published it as a single volume.In both editions the author is rendered as Katharine O'Shea with Mrs Charles Stewart Parnell below in brackets.I don't know when she actually wrote the books. Callum Peterson

I must add that it is amazing how many respected historians spell her name incorrectly. F.S.L. Lyons is the exception.

I assume that she wrote it not long before it was published then. We ought to move this article to "Katharine O'Shea", unless anyone objects soon I will do so. It's interesting to note that this is the name by which she preferred to be known towards the end of her life. PatGallacher 10:13, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
