I have just finished reading a biography of Patrick Pearse by Ruth Dudley Edwards - "Patrick Pearse - The Triumph of Failure". I very much enjoyed this book and gave it a five star rating on Amazon.co.uk. I have also reviewed it for Amazon - my review is available here.
I sent a short email to Ruth Dudley Edwards today thanking her for an enjoyable read and to my surprise she responded almost immediately. I told her that Roma and I had a copy of the photo of Pearse as a boy which at first we could not identify. Her response was as follows:
Thank you very much, Eugene.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I certainly enjoyed writing it.
How interesting about the unidentified boy!
