Seán MacDiarmada: 16Lives

An accessible biography about Seán MacDíarmada, a leader in the 1916 Rising. Book six in the '16 Lives' series.

'In his well-researched book on the most enigmatic of the Rising’s leaders Brian Feeney addresses the difficulty of writing a biography of a figure who left little in the way a documentary trail … This short volume is a fine addition to the ever increasing literature on this period. MacDiarmada comes across as a committed and driven man, charming and sometimes funny yet single-minded and capable of manipulation. In the run-up to the centenaries the great dangers are to be on the one hand overly reverential or on the other overly critical. Feeney avoids these dangers' Dublin Review of Books
