Parnell to Pearse
Only 1 left in stock
This little-known classic is a uniquely valuable insight into the fascinating and complex transitional period between the decline of nineteenth-century constitutional nationalism and the emergence of the modern Irish state, written by John J. Horgan, whose father had nominated Parnell for the Cork constituency in 1880. The author’s account is based on his personal knowledge of the panoply of historical figures from “Parnell to Pearse”, and on his own involvement as an activist and observer in the turbulent period that witnessed the extinction of the Irish Party. This title comes with an introduction by John J. Horgan’s grandson, Professor John S. Horgan.
