Our colleague, Dr Kevin O’Sullivan, has recently been appointed as a series editor on the Royal Irish Academy’s Documents on Irish Foreign Policy project. DIFP publishes primary source materials on Irish diplomacy, and is an excellent resource for students, scholars, and anyone interested in Ireland’s relationship with the outside world since the founding of the state. Its most recent volume, on the period 1961-65, will be published in November 2020, and includes materials on Irish peacekeepers in the Congo, Ireland’s first application for EEC membership, Anglo-Irish relations, and many other themes. You can access many of the earlier volumes for free online at and follow DIFP on Twitter at The project is a partnership between the RIA, the National Archives of Ireland, and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
