The Irish Republican Brotherhood was one of the most important revolutionary organisations within Irish history and had profound influence on the emergence of Ireland as we understand it today. Founded in Dublin and New York in 1858, its story encompasses intrigue, espionage, international bombing campaigns and revolution. Without it the generation that followed could not have made the gains it did between 1916 and 1921 and the Ireland we know today may not have existed.
In this book the story of the IRB and the Fenian conspiracy it led is told for the first time through photographs. The culmination of a collaboration between the National Library of Ireland, Glasnevin Trust and Mercier Press, it is a comprehensive yet accessible history of one of Ireland's most important revolutionary movements.
