Several new characterizations of strongly irresolvable topological spaces are found and precise relationships are noted between strong irresolvability, hereditary irresolvability, and submaximality. It is noted that strong irresolvablity is a faint topological property, while neither hereditary irresolvablity nor submaximality are semitopological.
