Book launch: Transnational Revolutionaries: The Fenian Invasion of Canada, 1866
On Tuesday 2 February, the launch of Dr David Doolin’s new book Transnational Revolutionaries: The Fenian Invasion of Canada, 1866, Volume 71 in the Reimagining Ireland series, took place at the Mansion House on Dawson Street in Dublin.
The book is published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the event, in which several thousand Irish American immigrants organized themselves into a military outfit and made a doomed attempt to invade Canada from within the United States.
The evening was hosted by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Críona Ní Dhálaigh.
Transnational Revolutionaries is available to buy here.
