The Catholic Church and the Northern Ireland Crisis 1968-86

Front Cover
Gill and Macmillan, 1991 - Catholics - 261 pages
This study examines the response of institutional Catholicism to the political violence in Northern Ireland since 1968. The book is part contemporary history, part study of the attitudes and opinions of Catholic clergy in Northern Ireland and part examination of the Northern Irish Catholic ethos. Both in its breadth of reference and attention to detail, Dr McElroy's study helps to illuminate a hitherto unexplored but vital aspect of the Northern Ireland Crisis.
