About this title


In this comprehensive history, Durney illustrates the unique role that Co. Kildare had in the Irish War of Independence. He details the group of volunteers who followed the railway track into Dublin to partake in the 1916 rising. He details attacks at Greenhills, Maynooth, and Barrowhouse. He examines the Rath internment camp in the Curragh, and the reaction in the county to the truce, the treaty, and the eventual split in the republican movement in the lead up to the Civil War. This comprehensive account will be a valuable addition to literature on this formative period in Ireland's history.

About the Author:
