What did you like best about Martyrs and Traitors? What did you like least?
Worth a read for an insight into the forgotten hero of our independence Bulmer Hobson and the some of the many women who were involved but seems to be promoting the idea that Irish independence was a great ideal once you didn't leave the Irish in charge. Hugely insulting in its gib portrayal of most of the heroes of 1916 as buffoons without much to back it up except a sneering contempt for uncivilised Irish Catholic. It certainly doesn't lack attitude.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The day-to-day lives and musing of what are now regarded as 'minor' players in the fight for freedom, especially the role of theatre and the various women involved. And Hobson himself. It's about time he was brought back to life
