Today we celebrate the 120th anniversary of the birth (26 May 1897) of Ernest Bernard Malley, more popularly known as Ernie O’Malley or less well known as Bernard Steward (1920-21) and even less known as Cecil E Howard-Smyth (1925-26). To mark this occasion, we are thrilled to share this new website dedicated to preserving and remembering his life.

This is only a start and more materials will be added regularly. We would like this website to be the go-to site for information about Ernie. In due course some of his unpublished works will be added as well as his diaries. The bibliography will be updated as more materials are published, but is it a good start. Perhaps people can add comments in due course.

To avoid making and maintaining two different websites, we will include materials relating to Helen Hooker, his American wife and artist, on the same site.

We welcome any feedback and other thoughts.

I greatly appreciate the technical, emotional and substantive support that Conor and Bergin have given me in pushing me to this level of technical capacity. I hope you enjoy the site and do return from time to time.
