"This book is absolutely essential for anyone interested in the struggles for Irish freedom and for socialism in Britain and goes a long way towards ensuring that McLoughlin is no longer Ireland's forgotten revolutionary." --"Morning Star" (May 2011) "This book not only restores to history Sean McLoughlin, a remarkable activist and radical, but also raises important questions about the relationship between Irish republicanism, labor agitation, and class in the revolutionary period, challenging many established accounts as it does so." --Dr. Brian Hanley, Queens University Belfast
