Illustrated. Originally published 1911.Michael John Fitzgerald McCarthy (born in Midleton, County Cork 1864- died 26 October 1928) was an Irish lawyer and an anti-clerical author.McCarthy was the son of Denis and Catherine McCarthy. In 1887 he marred Margaret Ronayne of Donickmore, near Midleton. He was educated at the Vincentian seminary in Cork City, at Midleton College and took a B.A. at Trinity College Dublin in 1885. In 1887 he was called to the Irish Bar.Notably and almost uniquely for an Irish nationalist, McCarthy was opposed to the increasing social influence of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland, on the approach to Irish independence. As the Catholic Church still controls most Irish schools and universities, his books and independent approach have not received much attention in the last century. They were best-sellers in their day, and had an influence on commentators such as James Joyce. He described his books on Ireland as sociology.
