Aftermath Post-Rebellion Insurgency in Wicklow

By Ruan O'Donnell

County Wicklow remained the most consistently disturbed part of Ireland until 1803. Militant factions of battle-hardened United Irishmen held out in the fastnesses of the Wicklow mountains and confounded every strategy devised to defeat them for over five years. This book investigates the underlying causes of this phenomenon and provides a detailed account of the experiences of all the major groupings, including the little known elements led by James Hughes and Michael Dalton.
