'The definitive account of the response of the British labour movement to the Easter Rising and Irish War of Independence'

-- John Newsinger, Professor of History at Bath Spa University, and author of 'The Blood Never Dried: A People's History of the British Empire' (2000)

'A very well written and closely researched account ... very much a post-revisionist history of the Irish Revolution and its aftermath placed in the context of the interconnected and shared histories between Britain and Ireland'

-- Mary Hickman, Professorial Research Fellow, Centre for Irish Studies at St. Mary's University, and co-author of 'Migration and Social Cohesion in the UK' (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012)

-- NW Labour History Journal

'Well worth reading'
