    1. Fantastic book, I would recommended it to anyone studying history or who are just interested in history. It is a compilation of powerful speeches in Ireland from 1782-2007.

Many speeches reflected the important role of religion in the day to day life of the Irish people. The religious establishment influences the careers of government officials.


    5. No man has the right to fix the boundary to the march of a nation. No man has a right to say to his country "thus far shalt thou go and no further"
