"The book is as beautifully produced as one would expect from the Royal Irish Academy (RIA), which specialises in such publications. The many photographs, murals, cartoons and extracts from letters not only complement but embellish our understanding of the text... Ireland 1922 is a good starting point for people to re-engage with the commemorations, and is to be commended to all who are interested in Irish history." Ronan McGreevy, Irish Times, 22/01/2022
