Drogheda

Cromwell's famous siege and massacre of Drogheda has often been misunderstood and misrepresented. Based on the best recent historical writing, Rutherfurd gives a historically balanced and blow-by-blow account of the drama and tragedy of that day, in the 'Drogheda' chapter of his second Irish book.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Hard to believe, but this month of April is the 50th anniversary of the 'official' break-up of the Beatles. This author was a very timid young student at Cambridge then. But the far more worldly and talented guy who had the room across the corridor from me had a lovely girlfriend who worked for John Lennon; and one day they scooped me up and took me to Lennon's house at Ascot. The white house with the white piano. Lennon himself wasn't there, but all the same . . . Fifty years later, that day is still so vivid
