modern phenomenon of the single-family home and the nuclear family. In his view, the home became, by the late nineteenth century, the ‘fundamental unit of culture’ and thus the primary site of religious consumption.25 Acquiring devotional items for the home was a primary duty of Irish wives and mothers. Thus modern Irish Catholicism, with its visual and material culture, was deeply wedded to commercialisation and consumerism.

writer fails to acknowledge anywhere in his hyperbole-ridden review. More than anything, though, the tone of the writing serves mainly to confirm one of the things that drove McGovern to write Hillsborough in the first place, something which Marcus Free explains in an article that discusses the relationship between Liverpool writers and Irish identity in Britain: For McGovern the label ‘Scouser’ signifies birth in Liverpool, but also a cultural sensibility and sense of difference informed by Irish Catholicism. On the anti-Liverpool prejudice following the 1989

something he considered essential: a condemnation and cessation of ‘the crusade instituted by the R.C. priesthood against the temporalities of the Established Church’.248 The remainder of the letter was a diatribe against what he believed to be the unreasonable ingratitude and hypocrisy of priests in supporting candidates whose objective was to ‘subvert’ the established Church.
