Irish Rebelsby Morgan Llywelyn
From the daring pirate-queen Grace O'Malley to the fiery Protestant lawyer Theobald Wolfe Tone, the stories behind 18 of Ireland's greatest rebels have been collected in this book. Ranging from the 16th century to today, these rebels come from diverse backgrounds but have each challenged the Establishment and fought for their right to self-determination. From the earliest rebellions by Celtic nobles through the turmoil of the Easter Rising up to the Northern struggles by Bobby Sands and Gerry Adams, these rebels have made their lasting mark on Irish history.
