Through my many years of research and travels through the provinces of Ulster I have attempted to record the graves of the fallen for prosperity as sadly many are so badly neglected, they will shortly be unrecognizable. In my opinion it is a National shame. I hope that this book will open a porthole which will shine a light into that time in history, and the life and times of many of the men and women who participated in the United Irishmen’s struggle.

 

Their stories and travels often leading to them being banished to distant lands also led in many cases to their early tragic deaths.
