In this special edition of Talk About Ireland I examine life in Ireland between 1939 and 1945, the period known as the Emergency.

I am joined by local historian, James Scannell, to help me delve into the legislative and social dimensions of the Emergency.

I also draw upon the following scholarly resources:

  1. T. Ryle Dwyer, Eamon de Valera (Dublin, 1991).
  2. Brian Girvin, The Emergency: neutral Ireland, 1939-45 (London, 2006).
  3. Helen Litton, The World War II years: the Irish Emergency: an illustrated history (Dublin, 2001).
  4. Clair Wills, That neutral island: a cultural history of Ireland during the Second World War (London, 2007).
  5. Ian S. Wood, Ireland during the Second World War (London, 2002).
