Tales of passion and romance, love on the battlefield, affairs kept secret on pain of death …

From the bride who married in a prison cell, to the leader caught in a love triangle, to the revolutionaries who did their loving on the run, the romantic lives of Ireland’s most famous characters have been predictably turbulent.

Some Irish lovers have shocked a nation and brought down governments, some have produced the world’s most beautiful poetry, some have reached across oceans – not to mention deep divisions at home – to find love.

Marian Broderick views historical Irish romances through a contemporary lens, from the legendary lovers of prehistory to more modern convention-defying pioneers.

From the legendary Deirdre and Naoise to WB Yeats and Maud Gonne, Charles Stuart Parnell and Katherine O'Shea to Hilton Edwards and Micheál MacLiammóir, romantic Ireland is far from dead and gone!
