A photographic record.

by  George Morrison.

Drawing from his huge collection of images, George Morrison, Ireland’s most distinguished film maker and photographic restorer, has produced the essential photographic guide to a key period in modern Irish history. Revolutionary Ireland: A Photographic Record covers the entire sweep of the ferment that ended British rule in nationalist Ireland.

Morrison reproduces photographs of the key people and events up to the end of the Civil War and beyond, including the background to the events themselves, as well as the transformative series of revolutionary moments—centred on the Easter Rising of 1916—that created modern Ireland.

George Morrison is one of Ireland’s most distinguished film makers and photographic restorers. Now in his 90s, he was born in Tramore, Co. Waterford and is best known for his films ‘Mise Éire’ (1959) and ‘Saoirse?’ (1961). He has also made many documentaries and produced a number of important photographic books on modern Irish history, including The Irish Civil War with Tim Pat Coogan.
