It is with some circumspection that this particular reviewer approaches a collection of articles ?in honour ? of someone. The danger of finding between the covers a disparate collection of articles aimed at eulogy and memorialisation rather than the promotion of scholarship is uppermost in one ?s mind and rightly so when such a collection makes claims to academic credentials. This collection of articles, highly diverse in both tone and content, successfully navigates a balanced course between honouring an individual of great merit and presenting significant scholarship in the field of Franco-Irish relations from the seventeenth century through to the present.
