Honestly, not that great a book. By trying to tell Irish history biographically instead of chronologically, Golway doesn't build up the tension around climatic events, and often ends up telling a just plain confusing narrative. The one exception, though, was the section on the IRA and Orangemen in Northern Ireland; it is a little partisan towards the Republicans, but well told.

Ty I lost this book. I was pretty good for the first 150 pages, but I can't find another edition anywhere so I'm gonna try my luck with another Irish history.
