The defining moments of Irish history illustrated with extended commentaries. In the Irish Century the complex strands of Irish history are given physical expression : the main protagonists from the mid 1850sto 1910 were the Unionists comprising the old protestant ascendancy and the Northerners, and 2ndly, the Nationalists, both physical force men and constitutionalists. Each grouping has formed and reformed, declined in influence or extended it's constituency over the subsequent century to give an enduring shape to Irish politics. Major personalities, events, crises and triumphs are documented in this powerful book not just in the field of politics but also in art and culture and sport and the traditions of the countryside.Biografía del autor:
