‘This volume is a useful contribution to the exploration and assessment of the impact of the First World War in the context of the country house. It is a testament to the potential afforded by archival sources, which enable researchers to give voice to a multitude of experiences’, Lorraine Bourke, Irish Arts Review (Spring 2017).

‘Explores the little known world behind the gates of the “Big House” … [an] excellent collection of essays’, Michael Merrigan, Ireland's Genealogical Gazette (February 2017).
