Grattan's famous Parliament in the late eighteenth century, in which Ireland's Patriots hoped to secure independence from the English Parliament, forms the political background to the story of the 'Grattan' chapter in Edward Rutherfurd's second Irish book.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
