Contribute to Pue’s

Our blog aims to collect opinions, and be a vehicle for discussion, on the state of history in Ireland.  We encourage anyone and everyone to comment on the posts.  We will, however, remove comments which we consider inappropriate or offensive.  All opinions expressed are understood to be the opinions of the named author rather than of Pue’s Occurrences.

If you wish to contribute a post of your own, please contact the editors at and tell us your idea.  If we like it, we’ll give you a date to have the piece by.   Here are some guidelines:

  1. Authors are responsible for the opinions and accuracy of their pieces.  Controversy is good, but we will not publish posts that are libelous, racist, sexist, bigoted or otherwise offensive.
  2. Pieces should be 200-600 words. Please bear in mind that a piece that exceeds 250 words must be broken up and only the first 250 words will appear on the front page of the blog. If the break should occur earlier to reflect the flow of the writing, please suggest a place for it.
  3. If your piece exceeds 600 words we reserve the right to edit or reject it.
  4. A picture or suggested image must accompany each piece as an additional attachment.
  5. Please also include web links where possible and a biography of less than 50 words that will appear at the bottom of your piece.
  6. Keep it informal.  No footnotes please.
  7. Please submit your piece to
  8. Copyright for each piece is held by the author.  Where no author is listed the piece is copyright of Pue’s Occurrences.
  9. We will generally not reprint articles which have appeared elsewhere.

Once the piece is posted, your name will appear in our list of contributors.  You will also have a byline on the individual piece.  Please do send it to all your friends! When readers respond to your piece you will be able to reply using the comment function.

At this time we are not looking for regular contributors and would prefer one-off pieces on a topic of your own interest.  Reviews of events/exhibits/museums/books/movies/tv/film are welcome.  Topics need not be Irish, just of interest to the history community in Ireland.  We are particularly interested in reviews of events located outside Dublin.
