A new, completely revised and updated edition of Helen Dillon's classic On Gardening, a collection of columns first published in the Sunday Tribune.
In the 1960s Trinity College Dublin represented for some the last bastion of British rule in the Republic. For others it was a vital protection against a domineering Church and an illiberal political culture. In 1967 the young Minister for Education, Donogh O’Malley, astonished the academic and political worlds by announcing the government’s intention to merge the two. This fascinating study shows how social change has been debated in Ireland and how local loyalties, conservatism and personal antagonisms, with a little plotting on the side, can derail attempts to effect institutional change.
Geraldine Plunkett-Dillon (edited by Honor Ó Brolcháin)
‘A treasure trove for Irish historians. It is beautifully illustrated and reads like a best seller.’ The Irish Catholic

‘An accessible, conversational personal record of the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence by a woman who was never far from the hub of historical happenings.’ Irish Independent
The Plunketts were one of the most respected families in Catholic Ireland, before and after Independence. They had made their money from building-they built large swathes of Pembroke and Rathmines, and they owned half of the prosperous suburbs of Donnybrook-and they gained their respect from their activities on behalf of the new State. Joseph Plunkett, the author's brother was executed after 1916, and the author herself suffered during her involvement in the years before 1922.
What is the secret of the three ancient Egyptian rings? And what is their connection with the Knights Templar? Fanatics have killed for their possession—intent on keeping hidden the dangerous knowledge contained in their inscriptions.
John Beaumont, a London lawyer, has inherited one of the rings and he and his wife Claire are determined to solve the mystery.
Their quest takes them from Jerusalem to Languedoc, the land of the Cathars, but their movements are tracked by the members of the sinister secret society who are determined to stop them—by any means necessary.
In this absorbing thriller, the mystery unfolds in twists and turns while John and Claire struggle for their lives. The truth ultimately emerges--but at what cost?
