For the cause of liberty : a thousand years of Ireland's heroes by Terry Golway( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of Irish nationalism, from the legendary king Brian Boru, who united the chieftains of Ireland to drive out the Vikings, to the conflict in Northern Ireland. In a fast-paced narrative, Terry Golway tells a thousand years of Irish history, describing the achievements of the patriots who kept alive the dream of Irish freedom until they finally succeeded. Among the stories--some famous, some little-known--are those of Wolfe Tone, a leader of the 1798 rebellion who cut his own throat rather than submit to a hangman; Kevin Barry, executed at age eighteen rather than turn informer on the eve of independence in 1921; Bobby Sands, an IRA militant who died on a hunger strike in 1981, calling international attention to the conflict in Northern Ireland; and several remarkable women who played pivotal roles. Golway also reveals that the struggle for Irish freedom was not a strictly religious dispute; in fact, many of the greatest heroes of the nationalist movement were Protestants.--From publisher description

John Devoy's Catalpa expedition by Philip Fennell( )

John Devoy's men rescued six Irish political prisoners from the Australian coast, allowing millions of fellow Irishmen and American-Fenians, many of whom secretly financed the dangerou
