The articles cover a variety of interesting topics; among them are

  • a comparative study on the systems of local government in Ireland and Germany;
  • an examination of the need for cross-cultural training for Irish-German business;
  • an article on Joseph Beuys in Ireland;
  • a biographical study on Richard Francis Talbot, titular Earl of Tyrconnell, focussing on his ambassadorship for France at the court of Frederick II;
  • a brief history of Roger Casement’s ill-fated "Irish Brigade" in Germany during the First World War.

In addition, the Yearbook contains numerous reports by organisations and institutions involved in the field of Irish-German relations, giving information about their work in 1998/99, and a bibliography of research in Irish-German Studies in Ireland, covering the period 1995-1999.
