‘A major reference work, for which genealogists and other historians will be immensely grateful', Police History Society Newsletter.

'Would I recommend this book? Indubitably, your collection of treasured books would be inferior without it', Brendan Colvert, IPA Journal.

‘This well researched and excellently illustrated contribution is a valuable addition to the canon and a welcome source of RIC genealogy unlikely to be surpassed', Eddie O’Donovan, Síocháin.

‘It is difficult to find fault with this book …. This is an excellent reference work for state papers and newspapers of the period which will be of great value to the researcher and genealogist, as well as for the general reader. It also provides sufficient data for further analysis of the officer corps. There are nineteen appendices, and the value of the book is greatly enhanced by the 273 illustrations. The R.I.C. Officers now have their memorial', Peter Mulready, Irish Sword.
