We’re not resting on our laurels here in Kilmainham Tales, and we have a busy schedule of publications ahead.
Connolly - the Early Years
Brian O’Rourke, a native of Glasgow, is writing a book for us on James Connolly’s early years in Scotland. Brian is an expert on this subject, gives tours on it and is so generous with his information.
This will be Brian's first publication on the subject and we look forward to it.
War Memorial Gardens
Paul O’Brien is back with his fourth book for us – this time on the War Memorial Gardens in Inchicore. No history of this iconic site has ever been written, so we will be proud to add this to our catalogue.
The Easter Rising
Joe Connell has already written two successful books for us, and he is now embarking on a ‘mini series’ on the Easter Rising. His first will be on educators in the rising and their influence on the generations that took part in it.
Paid to Kill
Kevin Murphy, in collaboration with Mícheál Ó Doibhilín, is writing about the executioners who worked in Kilmainham Gaol and we expect the first draft of the manuscript shortly. Once received, we won't hang around bringing it to you.
Emmet, Catalpa and all
Aidan O'Connor is working on a biography of Robert Emmet to complement our Anne Devlin story, and also on the thrilling story of the Catalpa escape - a great 19th century adventure.
Mícheál Ó Doibhilín is working on several projects, including a biography of Dr. Edward Trevor, the so-called Beast of Kilmainham, biographies of those who fired the Custom House in 1921 and were imprisoned in Kilmainham Gaol, and the Forgotten 2000 project (see here).
