Quincey Dougan is a historian, historical consultant (Bygone Days Consulting) and freelance journalist; hailing from rural County Armagh, living on the fringes of the infamous South Armagh area. He regularly gives presentations on topics within the broad realms of Irish History, politics and culture; and facilitates group work and discussions in related subject areas. He has authored several books including ‘Leitrim-A County at War’ (August 2015); and ‘The Armagh Brigade- The formation and sacrifice of the Ulster Volunteer Force in the Orchard County’. In the past his main areas of interest have been (but not confined to) the Great War, the Home Rule Crisis, the history and development of the marching band in Ireland, Ulster Loyalism and Unionism, Irish Unionism; and the Orange Order (particularly its development and history within Ireland outside the confines of Ulster).
His work has included regular historical features in the Belfast Newsletter, and he has also featured in History Ireland Magazine and a range of other publications. He was formerly a weekly columnist in the Belfast Newsletter (2010-2016), and currently has a column in the monthly issued publication for the Orange Institution, the Orange Standard. Bygonedays.net is intended as a conduit for some of Quincey’s work.
