The Immortal Irishman is a biography of Thomas Meagher (pronounced; Mar). It is well written and was on the non-fiction bestseller list. Anyone who has any Irish ancestry should read this for a better understanding of Ireland and why so many left. Followers of the US Civil War will also find the book worthwhile.

As with all stories of Ireland this one is interesting. especially for those who don't understand the hated by England of the Irish people and their treatment. One small error. His name is spelled MEAGHER and sounds like "MAR". Again it is a good story. want to read more about Irish history and the Caribbean read White Cargo . White cargo is an eye opener .
