Synopsis: Published for the first time, this memoir by a member of the Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) provides many insights into life as an Irish policeman in the last quarter of the nineteenth century, during Ireland's turbulent years of the Land War right up to the Irish War of Independence. Thomas Fennell (1857-1948) paints a lively picture of the daily activities of a highly regimented force, constantly under hierarchical scrutiny from Dublin Castle. He is acutely aware of the ambivalent position of the RIC drawn largely from the sons of tenant and small farmers yet supporting the Ascendancy and the landowning classes. Fennell was a nationalist yet retained a loyalty to and pride in the force. He criticizes the repressive behavior of the large police force dispersed in the countryside in some of its day-to-day activities, and explains that during the Land War the population at large understood that the police were carrying out work that they often found distasteful.

Review: "Scholars of nineteenth-century Irish and Irish-American politics should reacquaint themselves with these classics, part of a long running and immensely useful series from University College Dublin Press." Irish Literary Supplement Fall 2008 --Irish Literary Supplement

"University College Dublin Press has now published over thirty 'Classics of Irish History'. These contemporary accounts by well known personalities of historical events and attitudes have an immediacy that conventional histories do not have. Introductions by modern historians provide additional historical background and, with hindsight, objectivity." Books Ireland Nov 2007 --Books Ireland Nov 2007

"Thomas Fennell's book will appeal on its own merits to a wide readership. It will enlighten students that study the origin of modern policing and it will be a treasured item on the bookshelf of any family associated with The Royal Irish Constabulary." IPA (International Police Association) Journal Dec 2003 --IPA (International Police Association) Journal Dec 2003

Book Description University College Dublin Press, Ireland, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Thomas Fennell provides an account, previously unpublished, of life in the Royal Irish Constabulary during the turbulent 30-year period, 1875-1905. His early accounts begin during the Land Wars, and continue up to the Irish War of Independence, although by that time he was no longer serving in the force himself. Fennell was always an ardent nationalist, conscious that the RIC was a conservative body, supporting the Ascendancy and the landowning class. He criticises the repressive behaviour of the large police force dispersed in the countryside in some of its day-to-day activities. Yet he retained a loyalty to the force and explains that during the Land War the population at large understood that the police were carrying out work which they often found distasteful.
