This is an excellent follow-up to the first book - The Princes of Ireland. The introduction is Very helpful as it gives a brief review of the first book and refreshes the memory as to family names. The narrator is again Excellent and the stories unfold at a good pace -- most moving to me was the horrible description of death and disease from the Famine - very moving. One also comes to better understand the age-old religous problems that continue today. Even the last story - which moves a bit too quickly over the last 40 years of the book - has a very moving ending. Highly recommend - But read this after the first one

This book offers the historical insight into the deep long history of the religious conflicts in Ireland. The story is well written, characters believeable and the book moves along. Do not be scared away by the book's length, it does not drag. excellent work and terrific follow-up to the original Dublin saga.

I found the content interesting and well written. Even as an Irish man I found it difficult sometimes to separate the fiction from the fact, but that was not a problem. What was a very large problem was that the pronounciation of almost every person and place name was mispronounced. A small bit of research in this area would have made the book far easier to listen to. This is why I rated it 3 rather than 4.
