    I loved this book but it is a continuation of the author’s dissertation and is very in depth If I didn’t have the knowledge I did about not just Easter Week 1916 but the Irish political landscape in general I would have certainly been very confused so I’d suggest other books or even a documentary or two before delving into this read

    This was a really interesting read for me If you're particularly interested in early 20th century Ireland and Irish politics you'll enjoy this It was a good book that shed some light on the politics of the Irish Civil War and the Republican movement in general Mostly I read this book because I wanted to learn about the movement of women out of the sphere of influence in Ireland The Easter Rising and early Irish independence movement was greatly influenced and supported by women They are mentioned euals in the Proclamation of the Republic of 1916 but by the mid 20th century and the arrival of Eamon de Valera and Fianna Fail at the head of Irish politics women were nearly second class citizens This book did a great job of examining how the infighting and fracturing of the women's movement in Ireland created this complete collapse of power that lasted well into the 20th century
