More citings of Lemass biography

In their An Economic History of Ireland Since Independence (Routledge, 2013) Andy Bielenberg and Raymond Ryan called Evans’ work ‘less effusive’ than previous biographies of Lemass, praising it as ‘critical and nuanced’ (p. 20). 

 
n a headline article in the Irish Times entitled “Lemass’s Silent Anguish” (20/07/13), historian Eunan O’Halpin cited Evans’ criticism of other historians for ‘sustaining rather than debunking a supposed Lemass legend’ and highlighted new evidence in Evans’ book on the death of Lemass’s older brother Noel.
