THE INVINCIBLES- THE PHOENIX PARK ASSASSINATIONS AND THE CONSPIRACY THAT SHOOK AN EMPIRE

£22.99

In an Ireland still reeling from years of famine, with tenant farmers being evicted and left to starve for their inability to pay exorbitant rents, revolutionary fervour was growing. An inner circle of the IRB was formed, a secret assassination squad within a secret society- the Irish National Invincibles. Their mission was to strike at the heart of British Imperial power, to kill the figureheads of Ireland's oppressors. 

On their way home from a triumphal parade through the city on 6 May 1882, Lord Frederick Cavendish and Thomas Henry Burke, two of the heads of the establishment, were set upon and stabbed to death in Dublin's Phoenix Park. These killings would shake the Empire to its core, and shape the following decades of Irish history.
