About Charlie McGuire

Charlie McGuire's main research interest is in Irish labour history. His PhD, which was awarded by the National University of Ireland Galway, was a study of the career of Irish socialist and labour movement activist Roddy Connolly. This formed the basis of the book Roddy Connolly and the Struggle for Socialism in Ireland , published by Cork University Press in 2008. His second monograph Sean McLoughlin: Ireland's Forgotten Revolutionary was published by Merlin Press in 2011 and focused on the life of a little-known but significant figure of the Irish Revolution.

Research interests and activities

Charlie McGuire continues to research in Irish labour history, and is also interested in oral histories of working lives. He has a long-standing interest in the history of trade unionism in the British building industry and has been involved in oral history projects of building workers and activists within the various building unions.
