Description

Veteran IRA leader Ernie O'Malley criticised Kilkenny as being 'slack' during the War of Independence, but Kilkenny was truly at the forefront of the struggle for Irish freedom. No Kilkenny inhabitant escaped the revolutionary era untouched, especially during the turbulence of 1916 and the Civil War. Kilkenny has been overlooked in accounts of this period, and this book rectifies that neglect with superb use of previously unseen archival material: aimed at both the general reader and anyone with an interest in Kilkenny and the Irish Revolution, the main personalities and events in the broader national context are illuminated by the key events and personalities of the county. All major battles and altercations are impartially examined, along with the record of Kilkenny fatalities during the War of Independence, listing for the first time all those from Kilkenny - combatants and civilians - killed during the Truce and the Civil War, revealing an even more deadly conflict than anyone has previously believed.
