Of the women who were caught up in the turbulent events of 1798, only a few left behind a written record of what they witnessed. Most of the known accounts, written as historical narratives, are gathered together for the first time in this book. Some are well known to rebellion scholars, while others are more obscure and have either never been published or have appeared in an extensively bowdlerized form. The editor has gone back to the original manuscripts in many cases and reproduced them faithful to their original wording. The book contains extensive annotations, with biographical sketches of the narrators as well as references to a host of associated individuals that will interest not only students of the rebellion, but also local historians and genealogists. The Narratives offer a unique window on the lives of Irish women more than two centuries ago, and their words have a stirring poignancy that continues to make their accounts compelling reading.

In 1798, the Irish rose up against the corrupt English government run out of Dublin. Joined by both Protestants and Catholics, the rebellion quickly spread across the country. Although the Irish peasantry were armed mostly with pikes, they were able to overwhelm a number of small, isolated British outposts. However, even with the half-hearted assistance of the French, the Irish could not compete with the organized ranks of the British Army when under competent leadership. In a brutal turning of the tide, the Redcoats plowed through the rebels. In just three months, between 15,000 and 30,000 people died, most of them Irish. This book tells the story of this harsh, but fascinating, period of Irish history and covers the organization and uniforms of the forces involved.

The outbreak of revolution in Paris in 1789 forced Britain into a political and military conflict that had a profound impact on politics, economy, public discourse and cultural life well into the 19th century. The essays collected here examine the various responses to the revolution and the significant changes wrought within Britain by the events. Some essays discuss the ideological divisions within Britain and Ireland. Others take a closer look at the media and the debate on the press, and reinvestigate responses to the revolution by prominent contemporaries such as William Godwin, Dugald Stewart, and William Wordsworth.
