About the Author


fascinating ... useful ... remarkable ... a most useful book to keep to hand when reading others books on the Rising and the subsequent War of Independence as it contains most of the information that one may wish to quickly refer to

-- Ireland's Genealogical Gazette

Irish author, historian and lecturer Lorcan Collins sums it all up neatly with this slim volume of forensic facts, true timelines, listings, and biographies of all involved. Accented with maps, drawings, photographs and newspaper clippings, the bite-sized details are easily digestible, and, added-up, are more than filling for either hardcore readers with a passion for the past or those simply looking to see what all the hype is about. Either way, the author has pieced together the puzzle of an historic time and the people who made that history happen

-- Celtic Life International

Lorcan Collins [...] quietly amassed an encyclopaedic knowledge of revolutionary Ireland. That knowledge illuminates every page of 1916 The Rising Handbook, his essential new guide to the uprising. Collins' book is nothing less than a total immersion in the era, introducing us to its principle players and their often conflicting politics. [...] Planned as a reference book and guide to the general reader, 1916 The Rising Handbook is one of the most comprehensive introductions to the revolution you could ever ask for.

-- Irish Voice

a handy first tool for historians as well as 1916 obsessives

-- Irish Times

provides a readily available 'toolbox' of essential information, interesting facts and indispensable lists to the wider public ... to be recommended. It does what it says on the tin and more

-- Liberty Magazine

a great book ... it will bust many myths and end many rows

-- TV3's Ireland AM

A fascinating book

-- Ireland AM, TV3

I can seriously say this hand on heart that if there are two books that all our children should read this year, about 1916, it would be your 1916 The Rising Handbook and Joe Duffy's Book about the children who lost their lives in it. With the two of those you get an incredible range of views and a breadth of understanding about what actually happened that maybe you and I didn't get when we went to school..... I hope it sells by the bucketload

-- Mark Cagney, Ireland AM

if you only buy one title about the Easter Rising, it should be Lorcan Collin's 1916: The Rising Handbook

-- Irish News

slim but forensic

-- RTE Guide


-- Joe Duffy, Irish Mail on Sunday
