Review:

'A short popular-style history of the event -- indeed a remarkably thorough one, in which we discovered events we had forgotten or not known, and found photographs that were new to us too -- but the arrangement by location rather than time means that the devout pilgrim or visitor is encouraged and helped to view the places of significance.' -- Books Ireland * Books Ireland *
