In 'Pathway to Rebellion' William Henry charts Galway's rebellious past and suggests this is what inspired volunteers to take a stand when many other county's failed to stand by their convictions and show unquestionable commitment to the idea of a free Ireland.
Following the Rising those who were involved were imprisoned or forced to be on the run. However, in the aftermath of the leaders' executions, public opinion changed dramatically and the traitors of yesterday were suddenly the heroes of today.
Covering the entire story of Galway's Rising, this is the definitive story of the 1916 rebellion in the west.
