You'll find many similarities in in Eamon Redomnd's relationship to his father and Colm Tibn's relationship to his own father (They are also both called Michael). If you read the book Enniscorthy: History & Heritage by Michel Tibn (see http://users.cybercity.dk/~nmb23615/Bibliography/Non-Fiction.html) you will see that this man resembles Eamon's father in The Heather Blazing. You can also find information about Tibn's realtionship to his father in the essay 'The Sign of the Cross' in the book 'The Sign of the Cross'. Tibn position, in my opinion, is in opposition to Eamon Redmonds. However, Tibn's republican background gives him the ability to understand Redmond and his motivations. I would sugges that you read some of Tibn essay from London Review of Books and also some of the interviews that he has given (http://users.cybercity.dk/~nmb23615/Bibliography/ArtEsInt.html)
