The Wexford Rising of 1798 was the most bloody campaign in Irish history since the Williamite wars. In little than a month, over 30,000 people died. The Rising, which had been launched on a tide of revolutionary optimism, ended in slaughter. After this, the first republican revolt, Irish history was changed forever.
'The People's Rising' is the most detailed narrative history of the Wexford Rising yet written. Based on a wide variety of sources, many of which were not available to earlier historians, Daniel Gahan's account is rich in detail and original in interpretation. It is the most complete account yet written of this tragic and heroic event.
