The north east Offaly market town of Edenderry is examined in this study by Edenderry native, Ciaran Reilly. The author reconstructs one hundred years of the towns history, charting Edenderry from before the famine, through the Home Rule crisis and the emergence of nationalism, culminating in the break up of the Downshire estate after the War of Independence and Civil War. Edenderry's involvement in WW1, the role of Edenderry in the War of Independence are recorded for the first time in one volume. 'Edenderry 1820-1920: Popular Politics and Downshire Rule' will provide a long-awaited history of Edenderry and also help to dispel many long held local myths.
