A valuable first-hand account of the tumultuous events in Ireland from 1916 to 1923, written from a now almost forgotten viewpoint - that of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. O'Hegarty's heroes were Arthur Griffith, the founder of Sinn Fein, and Michael Collins, whom O'Hegarty was especially close to. Besides these key figures, O'Hegarty also provides fascinating portraits of other participants, including Eamon de Valera, who was also an early leader of Sinn Fein. O'Hegarty strongly opposed those who assumed there was a continuing need for force after ratification of the Treaty.

From the Back Cover:

This fascinating eyewitness account of the events in Ireland from the Easter Rising of 1916 until 1923 is now back in print for the first time since it was originally published in 1924. It is written from a now almost forgotten viewpoint -- that of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. O'Hegarty's heroes were Arthur Griffith and Michael Collins and he took the Pro-Treaty side in 1921, strongly opposing those who assumed a continuing mandate for force after ratification of the treaty.

The book contains vivid character sketches of Griffith, Collins and de Valera and as Tom Garvin writes in his Introduction 'it is ... written with enormous passion, verve and energy; it reads like a thriller.'

Review:

"P. S. Hegarty's bitter and ferocious The Victory of Sinn Fein was published in 1924 in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War. What makes it so gripping is the clarity with which it reflects a generally obscured aspect of the events it describes - the devastation and demoralisation of Irish nationalism by the Civil War. O'Hegarty's book, never republished until now, is remarkable because of its point of view. You could quote long passages of it and if you did not identify the author most people would assume that they were written by a diehard unionist or a contemporary revisionist." Fintan O'Toole Irish Times Dec 1998 "This is a neat and useful series, with an excellent uniform cover design." Books Ireland Dec 1998 "Those who come to The Victory of Sinn Fein knowing its reputation as an anti-Republican diatribe and attack on Republican women will be surprised by its exultant celebration of the achievement of statehood." Patrick Maume, Queen's University, Belfast Irish Political Studies 14 1999 "written with the urgency of troubled times and still retain[s its] freshness and argumentative force: excellent material for seminar discussions... well introduced by Garvin. His biographical essays are thoughtful, useful, and adopt an engaging combative stance on behalf of the writers." "the first entries in a welcome new series. They are hardily and handsomely constructed: a credit to their equally welcome new publisher." Peter Hart, Queen's University Belfast Irish Studies Review 7 (3) 1999 "University College Dublin Press has now published over thirty 'Classics of Irish History'. These contemporary accounts by well known personalities of historical events and attitudes have an immediacy that conventional histories do not have. Introductions by modern historians provide additional historical background and, with hindsight, objectivity." Books Ireland Nov 2007 "Scholars of nineteenth-century Irish and Irish-American politics should reacquaint themselves with these classics, part of a long running and immensely useful series from University College Dublin Press." Irish Literary Supplement Fall 2008
