From 1796 when Kilmainham Gaol received its first prisoners until 1924 when the last prisoners were removed, the gaol had held over 100,000 people. In the traditionalist linear narrative of Irish history, no other gaol in Ireland holds such a powerful resonance. This book traces the story from 1924 and demonstrates just how significant the history of the gaol has been since its closure as a prison.
