Review quote

"Atlas of the Irish Revolution [...] aims to do for the revolutionary period what the award-winning Atlas of the Great Irish Famine did for the second half of the 19th century. It will combine cutting-edge 'big issue' research with stories of people, provinces and parishes."-The Irish Times
