Summary Ireland is on the cusp of what has become known as the "Decade of Centenaries." In this unique book, we gain an insight into three of these centenaries-the signing of the Ulster Covenant, the Easter Rising, and the Battle of the Somme-from across the spectrum of political allegiances and perspectives. Including interviews with An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Fr Brian D'Arcy, Niall O'Dowd, and Roddy Doyle amongst many others, this collection of discussions touches upon the ethereal nature of our history, and the constantly shifting sands upon which we build our shared past. But what emerges as a consistent theme throughout these conversations is the degree of understanding that can be offered for our future in reflecting on how these events continue to shape our reality.
