"Union Cruiser" by Dr David Hume M.B.E.

Price: 8.00 [$9.76]

The Gunrunning of 1914 was a pivotal event in the history of unionist opposition to the Third Home Rule bill. Prior to the landing of a consignment of rifles and ammunition for the Ulster Volunteers the Liberal government and nationalist politicians believed that unionist opposition was based on bluff and bluster. But unionists in Ireland, and particularly in Ulster, believed that Home Rule would be an economic, political, social and cutlural disaster and that their future as a Protestant minority would be under threat. After the gunrunning, one author could remark that events had passed the stage of mere play acting.

This book is published by the Educational Affairs Committee of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland.

"The Sunshine Patriots: The 1798 Rebellion in Antrim & Down" by R.M. Sibbett

Price: 1.00 [$1.22]

Reprinted from:-"Orangeism In Ireland And Throughout The Empire" (Thynne & Co., Ltd 1938)

An understanding of the events surrounding the 1798 Rebellion in Ireland is a key to an understanding of the divided loyalties in our society today. The support for the Rrebellion by many northern Presbyterians was quickly, in historical terms, turned to support for the Crown and Constitution. R.M. Sibbett writes with an understanding of the motives of the men on both sides and does not attempt to hide the terrible deeds committed by each. His respect for honourable men from different sides is something we should emulate today.

52 pages.
