Voices from a torrid time (Séamus Connellan)

Regular price €20,00

Tax included.

Séamus Connellan researched extensively to get beyond repeated mantras and narratives that speckle many books about the period. Little-known incidents like the drowning of three volunteers, who were dispatched to Kerry to communicate with the gun-running ship theAud, pop up in the book.

Many of the chapters feature the writings, statements and even poetry of the protagonists. Séamus hopes that people will get a better appreciation of the seven signatories of the Proclamation of Independence from the book, their motivation and principles.
