'A short popular-style history of the event -- indeed a remarkably thorough one, in which we discovered events we had forgotten or not known, and found photographs that were new to us too -- but the arrangement by location rather than time means that the devout pilgrim or visitor is encouraged and helped to view the places of significance.' (Books Ireland)

The story is told with the great wit Dubliners are famous for. Gripping.
This book is a must for anyone who either wants to use it as a tourist guide to the streets of Dublin or simply read it as a means to learn more about the Rising.
Each event, the reason and result is explained brilliantly without getting too complicated or over simplified.
I could not put this book down and read it again at every location once I was in Dublin.
I would definetley recommend this to anyone.
10 out of 10!
In fairness the book was purchased on high recommendation prior to a recent trip to the beautiful city of Dublin and I was so impressed that I purchased two more copies for close friends.
I would definitely recommend it for any visitor with an interest in Irish history, ideally to be followed up by taking part in the Easter Rising walking tour whilst in the city. The tour departs daily from The International Bar and is frequently conducted by the co-author Lorcan Collins, a man whose company is one of the city's great pleasures.
Even better, if you are in Dublin do the tour, then by the book. One of the authors Lorcan Collins conducts a 1916 Rebellion walking tour, which starts outside the International Bar on Wicklow Street in Dublin. Its fantastic and in my opinion is the best 12 euros you can spend while in Dublin!
So go on, go on...do the tour and buy the book!
