‘Atlas Of The Irish Revolution’ Published Today

Cork University Press today published, “Atlas of the Irish Revolution” regarded by history commentators as being the most comprehensive treatment of Ireland’s revolutionary years, from 1912 to 1923.

The Atlas of the Irish Revolution; edited by John Crowley, Mike Murphy, Donal Ó Drisceoil with associate editor John Borgonovo, weighs 5kg and contains just under 1000 pages, featuring hundreds of maps, photographs, paintings and other illustrations.

The publication presents the history of the Irish Revolution in a truly vivid and scholarly way, while using many photos and archival documents that have rarely been seen by the Irish public.

All key events are covered, through some 140 contributions from leading scholars; discussing the Home Rule Crisis, the First World War, the Easter Rising, the First Dáil, the War of Independence, the Treaty and the Civil War.

The roles of women and workers are also highlighted, as are the experiences of Ulster Unionists, Southern Protestants and Irish people in British uniforms.
