20th Century Irish nationalism and Zionism
The connections and similarities between 20th Century Irish nationalism and Zionism seem far from obvious, but University of Chicago Ph.D. student Aidan Beatty has been conducting research which has turned up some interesting information on this. See his posts A Long and Oddly Intertwined History: Irish Nationalism and Zionism (January 23, 2013) and Body and Soul of the Nation: Early 20th Century Irish Nationalism and Zionism as Ideologies (February 5, 2013). You can download the podcast of an interview that Mr. Quinn did with Dublin radio station Near FM's The History Show early in 2013 by going here.
