Dr. Patrick Walsh

Assistant Professor (History)

Dr Patrick Walsh is an economic, social and political historian of eighteenth-century Ireland. His research investigates the processes of state formation in eighteenth-century Ireland within a comparative imperial perspective. He is especially interested in the ways in which the agents of the emerging Irish state negotiated and collaborated with the different interests and groups within Irish society. He has also published on aspects of the financial revolution in Britain and Ireland as well as on the politics of the early-eighteenth-century Irish ascendancy. He is currently collaborating with colleagues in the National University of Ireland, Galway on a database of Ireland's international trade, 1683-1829 while I am also co-investigator on the Irish Residential Army Barracks project. Prior to coming to Trinity he was a teaching fellow at University College London, and previous to that he was a Marie Sklodowska-Curie/Irish Research Council-funded research fellow at UCL and UCD from 2011-15. He is a director of the Castletown Foundation and was from 2014-17, co-editor of the journal Eighteenth-Century Ireland.
