Description

Alice Letitia Milligan - described by O'Donovan Rossa's wife as "a darling little electric battery". In this fascinating and highly readable account of the eventful life of one of the most vivacious of the politically aware Irish women of a hundred years ago, the author traces with sympathy and candour Alice's journey from a high-spirited and fun-loving girl, through romantic patriotism to the Easter Rising of 1916 and beyond, when she was shattered by the difference between romance and reality. Casement and Yeats, Parnell, O'Leary and de Valera are all players on this stage. This is an enthralling and timely personal study of the tragic fortunes of one of Ireland's most neglected women.
