…a magisterial tour de force…right from the start Connolly highlights obscure occurrences and sets them in perspective, corrects the misunderstandings that many of us will have inherited from the schoolroom or the lecture hall, and shows us above all that in our past no cause is pure, no sacrifice without calculation, no identity cast eternally in stone, no downfall without benefit to those who linger stealthily in the wings. Books Ireland Regularly itemising exquisite details of much political intrigue, Connolly provides lucid accounts of the growing corruption, duplicity and profiteering of New English officials. William J Smyth, Irish Times smart and insightful Patrick Griffin, Field Day Review
