History of West DunbartonshireChanging Identities, Ancient Roots: The History of West Dunbartonshire from Earliest Times West Dunbartonshire, that is, the area covered by Clydebank, Dumbarton and the Vale of Leven running up to the southern end of Loch Lomond, in the context of the larger national, and indeed international, historical developments to which they contribute and which they may illustrate. The region concerned is a Scotland in microcosm. It contains an early Celtic capital in Dumbarton, the preferred palace and the site of the death of Robert the Bruce in Cardross, the birthplace of Tobias Smollett, key cradles of the Industrial Revolution and the home of the winners of the earliest football World Cup. It is through the prism of the region's specificities that the development of the nation, and its social and political economy as a whole, can be seen in a very particular light. This history will use a regional basis to examine large-scale issues through specific local and regional events. It is, therefore, not simply a local history, although it will clearly have an additional local market, not otherwise likely to buy such a book) It will be a substantial study of interest to academics and historians worldwide both for its contents and its method, which without being entirely pioneering will be innovative. It will also be accessible to interested general readers.

 

Kirkintilloch TragedyAchill Island, Tattie-hokers in Scotland and the Kirkintilloch Tragedy, 1937 (Maynooth Studies in Local History) In the aftermath of the "Great Famine" (1845-51), many of Achill's clachan settlements evolved into migrant-based communities. During the annual potato-picking harvest season (June to October), each migrant household's young single male or female, whose ages ranged from thirteen to twenty-three, travelled to Scotland in a group or squad system under the supervision of a foreman or gaffer. Tattie-hoker was the phrase the local Scottish population gave to the seasonal Achill migrant worker. On 16 September 1937, ten male members of an Achill tattie-hoking squad who were based in Kirkintilloch, died after their sleeping premises became engulfed with toxic fumes. This horrific tragedy brought the plight of the island's young migratory workers onto the national public and political arena. This study examines the official response to the tragedy by the Scottish authorities and Irish government as well as analyzing the causes for the decline of the Achill custom of tattie-hooking in the post-Second World War.
