When Patrick Pearse founded an Irish language school for boys in 1908 his aim was to create a modern, Irish male citizen from the ancient models of masculinity. Pearse's Patriots explores how the idea of a modern Irish boyhood was created at St. Enda's through Christian iconography and mythology as well as a modern preoccupation with patriotism, Gaelic games, theatre and juvenile literature

MEDIA REVIEWS

Elaine Sisson is an academic, hers is a well-researched, honest and thoughtful exploration of Pearse and his school within their historical and intellectual context from which I learned a great deal. -Irish Times
