I listened to this audiobook because I loved Ireland by Delaney. He reads both of them and, because he has experience as in radio and television, he does an outstanding job. The writing in Tipperary, however, did not engage me much until the end when it became involved in the Easter Rising and the creation of the Irish Republic. Delaney's painstaking job of creating his characters contributed to the success of the ending. However, I think he could pared the process down and been just as effective. It also suffers from constant changing of narrators which can be confusing.
