Robert Emmet at 25 was hanged for planning and leading an unsuccessful insurrection against English rule in 1803. Thomas Moore wrote of him that he ’combined pure moral worth with intellectual power in the greatest degree.’ Savour his finely expressed thoughts and noble sentiments.

A well presented short biographical account of the life of Robert Emmet, a highly intelligent young man from a Protestant family with strong political leanings towards achieving social reform for Catholics under English rule and the Irish Protestant Ascendancy.

A whole series of mishaps led to the failure of the insurrection he planned. His speech from the dock is the stuff of folklore. His contemporaries regarded him as an inspiring, highly motivated and honourable young man who stood head and shoulders above everyone else.

A slim volume that will encourage all who read it to follow the path of truth, integrity and freedom.
