Number 2: Down Down Deeper & Down by Eamonn Sweeney
Selected by: Cian.
First published: October, 2010 by Gill and MacMillan.
Available?: In stock.
Why? “An example of great Irish non-fiction owing to its ability to effectively be an academic paper equivalent of ‘Reeling in the Years‘ – including bits too bad to ever go on RITY. Had to go dig it out as thinking of a submission led me to ‘that 80s book by that journo’.”
Significance?: “Thorough and usable as a tertiary historical source yet written in an entirely accessible manner.”
Sequel?: “There was some suggestion of an 80s/90s follow up but nothing as yet.”
