In 1973, he published "The Modernisation of Irish Society, 1848-1918" in 1973. The following year, he moved back to Ireland to become Professor of Modern History at University College Cork, succeeding Oliver McDonagh. He held the chair until 2002.

His 1989 "Ireland 1912-1985 - Politics and Society" won the "Irish Independent/Irish Life" Prize for History in 1991; and both the Aer Lingus/Irish Times Prize for Literature and the J.S. Donnelly, Snr. Prize for History and Social Sciences in 1992.

He has been a member of the Royal Irish Academy since 1985.
