The Atlas of the Irish Revolution with Donal O Drisceoil, Helene O’Keeffe and John Borgonovo
7 October, 2018 @ 1:00 pm
With Donal O Drisceoil, Helene O’Keeffe and John Borgonovo and moderator Catriona Crowe.
Described in an Irish Times review as “mammoth and magnificent,” this definitive and visually compelling volume brings to life a pivotal time in Irish history and nation-building. A chronological and thematically organized treatment of the period serves as the core of the Atlas, enhanced by over 400 colour illustrations. This academic tour de force illuminates the effects of the Revolution on Irish culture and politics, both past and present. It won the Best Irish-published category and the overall Book of the Year at the 2017 Irish Book Awards and has been reprinted several times.
John Borgonovo and Donal O Drisceoil are members of the School of History, University College Cork.
Helene O’Keeffe was among the principal researchers on the Atlas project.
Catriona Crowe is the former head of Special Projects at the National Archives of Ireland
