‘There is much to reflect on in this excellent and thought-provoking volume’, Stephen Farrell, Parliamentary History Yearbook (2017).

‘This is a well-deserved festschrift for one of the Irish historians of his generation who has left a striking mark not only on those who have read his work but those taught by him', Eoin Magennis, Cercles (2017).

'The twelve essays in this volume by a variety of Irish historians represent a fitting tribute to Sean Connolly ... The individual essays are ... of a high order, to represent many of the areas that have interested Connolly over the years and contain some original and innovative material ... The collection ends with a fascinating study of the Connolly family name from the pen of the accomplished economist Cormac O' Grada, largely based on the 1911 census.' Oliver Rafferty SJ, Journal of Ecclesiastical History.
