Making Sense of Britain’s Strange ‘Brexit’ Parliament
English parliaments have been known by many names, including ‘Reformation,’ ‘Cavalier,’ Long’ and ‘Rump.’ The one which has just been dissolved will surely have the title ‘Brexit’, because it was so dominated by the issue of leaving the European Union.
Ornithic Joyce- An Egregiously Preliminary Round of Avian Observations
Ronald Bates published an article entitled ‘The Correspondence of Birds to Things of the Intellect’ in the James Joyce Quarterly of Summer 1965. In his article Bates identified a species of ‘ornithic’ guise that he claimed to be a common trait in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
Peter Sutherland and the European Project
Paul Gallagher SC
I am perhaps unusual among Peter Sutherland’s friends in that I only had the pleasure of knowing him for the last nine years of his life. Like many others, I was left with a profound sense of loss on his passing. His friendship was generous, kind and great fun. There was also a sense of Ireland’s great loss.
Peter Sutherland: A Jesuit Boy
Noel Barber SJ
I am writing on Peter Sutherland as a ‘Jesuit boy’ not to insinuate that his place in history is due to his old school and the religious order that founded it. It is rather to describe, as best I can, the environment in which he developed his admiration of and loyalty to Gonzaga College and the Jesuits, and the consequences of the ‘Jesuit influence’.
Religious Liberty: The Next Big Thing?
Patrick Riordan SJ
Pope Francis’s timely letter Laudato Si’, on care for our common home, coincided with a general awakening of awareness of the crisis posed by climate change and the degradation of the natural environment.
Remembering Peter Sutherland
The summer issue of Studies: An Irish Quarterly Review is dedicated in tribute to the memory of Peter Sutherland, former Attorney General of Ireland, founding director-general of the World Trade Organisation, UN special representative for international migration from 2006-2017 and patron of Studies.
The centre-piece of the issue is a reproduction of a public lecture Chris Patten – now Lord Patten of Barnes CH, PC,– delivered in Dublin in February of this year, in honour of Sutherland.
Other contributions relating to Sutherland respectively afford us a glimpse of the personal qualities of a popular and hardworking individual, the impact and consequence of his Jesuit education and his expertise and commitment to a Europe united by free trade, as envisioned by Jean Monnet. A recent biography of Sutherland by John Walsh is also reviewed in the issue.

Remembering Peter Sutherland: A Personal Tribute
Alive, awake, alert, generous, good humoured, warm-hearted, energetic, funny, loyal, reliable, committed and sometimes difficult are all words that come to mind when thinking of Peter Sutherland. I first met him in the autumn of 1954 when we both arrived at Gonzaga College.
Seamus Heaney and Robert Lowell: A Turbulent Friendship
In Stepping Stones (2008), Dennis O’Driscoll’s excellent book of interviews, Seamus Heaney recalled that he first met Robert Lowell in 1972 at Sonia Orwell’s party to celebrate Lowell’s wedding to Caroline Blackwood.
