Hiram Morgan (born Belfast 1960) was educated at St Patrick's College Knock, 1971-78 and studied BA to PhD at Cambridge, 1979-87. He held various research fellowships and posts from '88 to '96 and has been lecturing in history at UCC since 1996. He has authored Tyrone's Rebellion, published by the Royal Historical Society (1993) and edited Political Ideology in Ireland (1999), Information and Media Through the Ages (2001) and the Battle of Kinsale (2004). He co-authored with John Barry Great Deeds in Ireland (2013 and worked with Dorothy Convery on Ireland 1518 (2015). He has contributed many peer-reviewed articles and was co-founder of History Ireland, Ireland's popular history magazine. He has been a principal investigator on several local, national and international projects and is currently head of CELT, the world's largest website for Irish Studies which is hosted by the School of History at Cork.

The recently-published Stanihurst volume has been well received:

'John Barry and Hiram Morgan should be congratulated for this splendid edition, as should their publishers, who have made it so handsome and yet affordable', Times Literary Supplement, June 2013

'Their edition is enriched with incisive but unobtrusive annotations and with a lengthy introduction that offers an  appraisal both of Stanihurst¹s career and of how his Latin text has been read and received in succeeding centuries', Irish Times, Dec 2013


'This first full edition of the seminal Latin work by Richard Stanihurst captures the flavour of the author¹s unique style of writing', Recusant History, Sept 2013
