Fr. John Murphy of Boolavogue 1753 - 1798 is a work of passion and attention to detail.

Nicholas Furlong has organised in a meaningful and lucid way the myriad threads of documentation, contemporaneous accounts, recollections and oral history.

He not only explores but also manages to explain the complex web of motivations of Fr Murphy and those involved in the Rising of 98.

This book manages to give a sense of both the large sweep of history and the 'human scale' of individuals caught in this history.

A fine and powerful piece of historical writing.
