THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER, SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2016 IRISH BOOK AWARDS With the threat of the First World War looming, tension simmers under the surface of Ireland. Bright, beautiful and intelligent, the Gifford sisters Grace, Muriel and Nellie kick against the conventions of their privileged, wealthy Anglo-Irish background and their mother Isabella’s expectations. As War erupts across Europe, the spirited sisters soon find themselves caught up in Ireland’s struggle for freedom. Muriel falls deeply in love with writer Thomas MacDonagh, artist Grace meets the enigmatic Joe Plunkett – both leaders of ‘The Rising’ – while Nellie joins ‘The Citizen Army’ and takes up arms to fight alongside Countess Markievicz in the rebellion. On Easter Monday 1916, the Rising begins, and the world of the Gifford sisters and everyone they hold dear is torn apart in a fight that is destined for tragedy. ‘Engrossing’ Irish Sunday Times 'Marvellous ... A gripping read' Irish Independent ‘Finally, women are being written back into the history of [Ireland's] awakening’ Irish Mail on Sunday

In the epic, action-packed sequel to the "brilliant" (Booklist, starred review) novel War Girls, the battles are over, but the fight for justice has just begun. It's been five years since the Biafran War ended. Ify is now nineteen and living where she's always dreamed--the Space Colonies. She is a respected, high-ranking medical officer and has dedicated her life to helping refugees like herself rebuild in the Colonies. Back in the still devastated Nigeria, Uzo, a young synth, is helping an aid worker, Xifeng, recover images and details of the war held in the technology of destroyed androids. Uzo, Xifeng, and the rest of their team are working to preserve memories of the many lives lost, despite the government's best efforts to eradicate any signs that the war ever happened. Though they are working toward common goals of helping those who suffered, Ify and Uzo are worlds apart. But when a mysterious virus breaks out among the children in the Space Colonies, their paths collide. Ify makes it her mission to figure out what's causing the deadly disease. And doing so means going back to the homeland she thought she'd left behind forever.

Collects together for the first time, plays written by the well-known Irish nationalists Patrick Pearse, Thomas MacDonagh, James Connolly, and Terence MacSwiney. In the months before 1916 MacDonagh staged When the Dawn is Come, and Pearse staged The Master, both works were designed to persuade the Dublin populace to support the advanced nationalist cause. At the same time, MacSwiney staged his play The Revolutionist in order to win the support of Redmondite nationalists in Cork. At Liberty Hall, only three weeks before taking part in the armed revolt of 1916, Connolly staged Under Which Flag? to persuade socialists to join the rebellion. The plays offer important insights into the rebels' political and military thinking. The introduction explains exactly how the plays influenced the Irish revolution between 1916 and 1921 and explores the theatrical influences that affected the rebels. The context of the plays original staging and subsequent influence both inside and outside the playhouse is also covered. The epilogue outlines the varying afterlives that the plays enjoyed once their authors were dead.
