The Sequel to the popular  Fadó: Tales of Lesser-Known Irish History

This volume reveals more episodes from Irish history throughout the ages. The Irish abroad are not neglected in this collection of tales, many of which are not widely known or have been long forgotten about. The author makes no attempt to heroise or demonise the figures, though some of the characters do not deserve the obscurity to which the passage of time has condemned them, while others are probably best forgotten.

Their stories illustrate the rich tapestry that forms Irish history...

  • Who was the walking gallows of Wicklow?
  • What was it about a cave in Donegal that attracted visitors from all over Europe?
  • What happened to the priest who evoked the ire of the Irish government?
  • How did an Irish civil servant defy the Nazis at a time when appeasement was popular?
  • Whose corpse in Galway created wonder and fear?
  • Why did a Monaghan man eat his fellow convicts?
  • And how did a Dublin woman try to assassinate Mussolini?

Laid out in chapters long enough to cover what is important and still retain the reader's interest, this book can be started from anywhere. Just like its prequel, Fadó Fadó is a must-have book for anyone interested in Irish history.
