The editors are deeply indebted to all who have facilitated the publication of France and Ireland in the Public Imagination. The inspiration owes much to Eugene O’Brien and John McDonagh (Mary Immaculate College, Limerick) who organized an Association for Franco-Irish Studies (AFIS) conference on the theme in 2012. The realization depended on the essay writers, on the patience of the publishers, and on the financial generosity of AFIS, to all of whom we are very grateful for their contributions. Particular thanks are due to Eamon Maher, General Editor of the Reimagining Ireland series, and to Christabel Scaife at Peter Lang, for their support. As always, the tolerance of colleagues, friends and family has been essential and is much appreciated.
