Featuring new information and a fresh look at events of the period, The Donegal Awakening offers an updated account of this crucial period.

In this book, Liam Ó'Duibhir charts the struggle for independence, both militarily and politically, in Donegal from before the events of Easter 1916 until the truce in 1921. Donegal has long been seen as one of the quietest counties during the War of Independence but this reputation belies an intriguing story of how republican sentiment grew in the county.

From the first mention of Sinn Féin, through the conscription crisis and the success of the 1918 elections, Ó'Duibhir charts the rise of the new political leadership in Donegal and how they built their own system of justice and local government. Alongside the practical politics, he also highlights the role of the IRB and the activities of the volunteers in resisting and thwarting the British efforts to retain control and impose order.

Featuring new information and a fresh look at events of the period, The Donegal Awakening offers an updated account of this crucial period.
