Ó CATHASAIGH, P. The Story of the Irish Citizen Army [SEAN O’CASEY’S FIRST BOOK]


2 in stock

Dublin: Maunsel, 1919. Crown octavo. pp. vi, 72. Printed stapled wrappers. A near fine copy. Rare in this condition. €175 Sean O’Casey’s first book, with his name in the Irish vernacular (the initial ‘P’ was a mistake). The first account of the formation of the Irish Citizen Army during the Dublin strike of 1913/14, and the part it played in the subsequent history of Ireland. The author was a leading figure in the movement and writes with vigour and conviction on the role of labour in Ireland. It also contains original character sketches of Larkin, Connolly, Captain White and Madame Markiewicz and an inside account of the relations between the Citizen Army and the Volunteers.
