With the exception of Robert Emmet, the most heroic figure of the ill-starred Insurrection of 1803 was Anne Devlin, and no one more directly involved in that occurrence has been more perfunctorily treated by historians.

Variously described by them as Emmet's housekeeper, his maidservant, or just a menial in his household, she has been given scarcely more than a brief mention, in many instances dismissed in a footnote, in their accounts of that stirring period. Anne Devlin, however, was much more than a housekeeper.

She played a not inconsiderable role in the Rising, and was in the full confidence of its leaders. This book re-discovers Anne Devlin, who, in her own words, painstakingly taken down a century ago by Brother Luke Cullen, tells of her sufferings and her cruel detention in Kilmainham Jail. The story gives a great and selfless Irishwoman the place so long due to her in irish history.

This new edition is a fuller account of the period and contains many illustrations of the places and people
