‘Cosgrove shows how the Riverstown conspiracy case, which saw the prosecution of prominent agitators, brought together not just discontent over ranching but the activities of the local United Irish League, simmering sectarian tensions and the role of the RIC in protecting the status quo. This Maynooth local studies publication is a good example of how a local case can tell us much about national events', Books Ireland (October 2012).

‘This type of research is of exceptional importance to the family historian who seeks a greater understanding of the conditions and events that impacted on the lives of our ancestors and their communities', Michael Merrigan, Irish Lives Remembered (April 2013).
