A reference work containing brief biographies of over 1,400 Irish men and women who have made notable contributions in their fields during the 20th century. The entries summarize Irish achievement over the last hundred years and include a diversity of talent from Van Morrison and James Connolly to Bernadette McAliskey and Roddy Doyle. Because the focus is on contributions during this century, writers such as Joyce and Yeats are also included although born in the 19th century.
