ICT Advisor, Navan Education Centre, Ireland
The Viking Network Regional co-ordinator, Ireland
name is Michael Farry and I am an ICT Advisor in Navan Education Centre,
Ireland. I am a native of County Sligo.
I am married to Winifred. We have four children, Fiona, Oisin, Sinead and Aisling.
I maintain the Viking Network Ireland site. My interests, apart from the Vikings, include silent cinema, the music of Bob Dylan, modern Irish history, the history of polar exploration and using the computer in education.
I completed a Ph D thesis at Trinity College, Dublin, on the Civil War in Co. Sligo, 1921-23. A revised version of this thesis has been published by UCD Press, Dublin as "The Aftermath of Revolution".
I am the author of two other books on the history of Sligo. One, Killoran and Coolaney, A Local History is a history of my native parish and the other Sligo 1914-1921 is a history of that period in the county. Both books are currently out of print but both havebeen issued as ebook. More details here.
