LIAM MELLOWS and the Unfinished Revolution
By Fionntán Ó Súilleabháin
"Irish revolutionary Liam Mellows has been described as one of the ‘most radical and intellectually questioning of the 1916-22 Republican leaders.’
The author looks at Mellow’s connection to Co. Wexford, with his formative years spent in Castletown, his life and times, his politics and his untimely death by firing squad at the hands of the new Free State government. Also, the relevance of his politics to the Ireland of today.
Drawing on a wide range of sources with extensive use of quotations from speeches in the US and his writings at home, here we have Mellows in his own voice."
'This new commemorative publication is a refreshing and often challenging overview of one of Ireland’s most respected militant Republicans. The legacy of Liam Mellows continues to reverberate 100 years after his illegal execution at the hands of former comrades in Dublin.'
Historian, Dr. Ruan O’Donnell, University of Limerick
