The book will be a coffee-table type, lavishly illustrated with historical images, and will run to over three hundred and fifty pages.
Contributors will include Dr. John Knightly, Bryan MacMahon, Donald Cameron, Dr. Patricia O’Hare, Tom Denny, Tom Dillon, Kay Caball, Jane O’Keefe, Victoria McCarthy, Karol O’Mahony, Dick Spring, and Dr. Declan Downey.
A must-read for all historians so look out for it.
It will be launched in November.
