"A journey into our own psyche...Tim Pat Coogan has dug, Heaney-like, into the past while opening doors to faraway places." --Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes "Rich in characterization and detail--not to mention the Coogan wit--this is an invaluable reference volume that belongs on the bookshelf of every Celtophile." --Publishers Weekly
