The first 25 years of this century saw a profound transformation in Irish life, and because these years helped define the fabric of social and political life in Ireland - north and south - for the remainder of the century, they remain compellingMoreThe first 25 years of this century saw a profound transformation in Irish life, and because these years helped define the fabric of social and political life in Ireland - north and south - for the remainder of the century, they remain compelling history. Growing political awakening among the Irish people led to an insurrection in 1916 that eventually spread throughout the country. The ending of British rule in 1922 after many centuries culminated in a descent into civil war. Irelands Unfinished Revolution brings those years vividly to life through the dramatic stories of nine veterans of the 1916 Rising, the subsequent Anglo-Irish War, and the Civil War. These men and women recall their experiences alongside the leaders of Irelands struggle for independence - Patrick Pearse, James Connolly, Michael Collins, and others - and their own growing political consciousness when Ireland as a nation was coming into its own.
