Excerpt from Lives of the Irish Saints, Vol. 4: With Special Festivals, and the Commemorations of Holy Persons

"The reverend author of the little work under notice has entered on his task of compiling a Catechism of Irish History in a most commendable and candid spirit, setting nothing down in malice, nor putting himself forward as an apologist or advocate, but the narrator of facts and events in their unadorned and simple truth. The plan of the work is at once familiar, perspicacious and elegant. There is no attempt made at fine writing, nor effect sought to be obtained by word painting or exaggeration. The author proposed to himself to write a hand-book of Irish history for the use of schools, and with that view he has divided the work into lessons, and at the end of each lesson or chapter the questions to be answered are placed in admirable and consecutive order. At a time like the present, when every effort is being made to make Irishmen forget the past of their country, which influenced, more than any other in western Europe, the destinies of mankind, the appearance of the Rev. John O'Hanlon's historical catechism is most opportune. He has discharged his important duty as a Christian minister, a gentleman, patriot, and scholar; he gives offence to none in the evidence which he produces, nor has he descended to the meanness of making a book for the instruction of the young a medium for conveying ill-natured statements, or for engendering hostility or ill-feeling between those who conscientiously differ from one another in politics and religion. He has not overdone his work, but has strictly adhered to a rule which he has carried out to the end. His catechism should be generally used in all schools where young Irishmen are instructed, no matter what creed they may profess." - Freeman's Journal.

"We would call attention to a little Catechism of Irish History, by Mr. O'Hanlon, the writer of those pleasant papers on Irish Folk-Lore Mythology, that have recently appeared in these pages. The papers, we think, prove that he can treat his subject attractively, and the following extract from his Preface is equally conclusive evidence, that he possesses the other and more important qualifications of the historian." - Gentleman's Magazine.

"The quantity of historical matter is immense, clearly assorted, and very judiciously selected. We are glad to see manifested an impartiality, without which history is not merely valueless, but absolutely poisonous." - Irishman.

"We are anxious to see this History of Ireland at once in the hands of the members of our Young Men's Societies throughout Ireland, in use in our schools, and in the library of every Irishman." - Sligo Champion.

"The publication of this excellent volume, at the low price of two shillings, should be regarded as a boon by that large class of Irishmen who, by the cost of preceding works on the same subject, have been prevented from acquiring a knowledge of their country's history. They should procure this book for themselves; they should put it into the hands of their children.
