Quick Overview

A fascinating account of how the Great Southern Railways was the main transport provider during the Emergency. It challenges the notion that the system was in a state of chaos.

Based on a wide range of sources, Peter Rigney examines such diverse themes as soap rationing, fuel diversity and desertion from the British forces.

The GSR played a key role in Anglo-Irish trade diplomacy which helped the Allied war effort, kept the economy ticking over and was the main means of transporting turf to heat homes. This is the most comprehensive account of the Irish economy during the Emergency.
