Description

Riots and Religion in Newfoundland delves into the history of conflict between our English and Irish ancestors, a controversial topic that has been overlooked, diminished, or completely ignored in many history books. David Dawe retraces the foundation of Newfoundland's religious history and explains how the battle between the English Protestants and the Irish Roman Catholics continued from the old country to the New World. This book will take you back in time as it highlights heinous crimes such as the murder of Magistrate William Keen, explores the uprising of the United Irish Society, and describes many other violent—and sometimes murderous—acts perpetrated between men and women of this province in the name of God and religion.

About the Author

David Dawe

Dave Dawe was born in Bay Roberts and currently resides there with his wife, Corinne, and two teenage children, Meagan and Aaron. He is an educator at Holy Redeemer School in Spaniard’s Bay, teaching elementary and junior high students who say they enjoy his classes for the stories he relates. This is entirely in line with his philosophy of teaching his greatest love, history, which is “to tell the human stories, not just to regurgitate the facts.” Mr. Dawe’s fascination with history was born when he was a youth, listening to the war stories of his grandfather, a veteran of World War I, and Mr. Dawe’s personal hero. There have been other inspirations as well, including colourful local characters, entertaining writers, and engaging university professors. As he gets closer to retirement, Mr. Dawe hopes to spend more time researching and writing Newfoundland history.
