Dunne (T. J.): The Gaelic response to conquest and colonisation: the evidence of the poetry.
In StH 20 (1980), pp. 7–30.
Examines poetry ranging from the late 16th-century to Aogán Ó Rathaille (†1729), and argues that the learned classes showed inability to respond to the demise of the Gaelic order, against the view that they fostered a new nationalist consciousness.
