New book: 'Kilkenny: In Times of Revolution, 1900-23'

A new study of the opening decades of the 20th century in Kilkenny – Kilkenny: In Times of Revolution, 1900-1923 – reveals that the county was at the forefront of the struggle for Irish freedom.

The 296-page book, written by historian Eoin Swithin Walsh, includes previously unseen archival material and explores the key personalities, revolutionary organisations and dramatic events in the county, but looks, too, at the lives of the ‘ordinary’ men and women outside of the conflict.

Publisher Irish Academic Press, €19.99. Also Amazon and other good bookshops.
