Star review April 4 2016

This was published in Dublin  in An Phoblacht- March 2016.

“This is an absolute gem, full of interesting narrative and packed with fascinating anecdotes which paint a very real picture of both ordinary  life and momentous events…..Wonderfully researched and beautifully written, it is one of the  most enjoyable books I’ve seen for some time and really deserves to have as wide a readership as possible. Do try and obtain a copy, and you’ll be glad you did. ”

The North Cheshire Family Historian said:

“…enormously detailed and painstaking research…It is a professional work, with references, lists of sources and a proper index, but most of all it is a very readable account…Anyone with with Irish ancestors from the Dublin of the time will learn much about ‘what it was like’ during those few days.”stockport review

This was in the Lipstick Socialist blog:

“It is an important book…”
