    Personally, I would like to thank the following family members for their help, support and inspiration over the years: my wife, Patricia Minton; my mother, Rosemary Elizabeth Fox; my sister, Sarah Minton; my daughter, Anna Rebecca Minton; and my son, Conor James Minton.

    On a professional level, I would like to thank Jude Bowen and her colleagues at Sage for their encouragement, interest and help in producing this book. I would also like to express my sincere thanks to my colleagues and students, past and present, at the School of Education, Trinity College Dublin, and to all of the students, staff members and parents in school communities all over Ireland with whom I have had the pleasure of working in the past. In this respect, I would particularly like to thank Rose Conway-Walsh and the people of the schools and the broader community of Erris, Co. Mayo. I would also like to thank the organisations who generously financially supported the research of my own that appears in this book – the Irish Independent newspaper, the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences, the Irish Youth Foundation, Raidió Teilifís Éireann, and Trinity College Dublin's Arts and Social Sciences Benefactions Fund.

    Finally, in ways which I cannot adequately articulate, but nevertheless hold to be true, much of what lies behind what might be called the ‘spirit’ of this book was inspired by my memory of my late maternal grandfather, James Sneddon (1925–1977), and it is to his memory that I dedicate this book. In my defens God me defend.
