The history of the red squirrel in Ireland

While I was researching the history of the red squirrel in Ireland for my thesis, I came across some wonderful old papers and books relating to the history of red squirrel. The work was summarized in my thesis, but I thought the story itself was pretty interesting, so with the help of Andrew Harrington, I put the information together in a blog article. The article can now be read over at Ireland’s Wildlife.
