I took a student group on this tour in March 2017 and he made a rich and complex Irish political history very relatable to us (we are American, so this is not a history we grew up with). He had us laughing at some points, but also told stories that humanized the events.
What I loved most was that he repeatedly worked to restore women's role in the rising (a history that has been eroded over the decades). This is not just another story about men's accomplishment's, it's a story about Ireland (regardless of gender); although he is careful to address the reality of gender discrimination as it surfaced.
He also accompanied our students to a bookstore as they loved the tour so much they wanted to learn more. Most of my students bought a book and he signed them for us, very amazing man. When we parted ways we got a hug and he advised us on some sights to explore in Dublin. Honestly one of the highlights of our tour, worth every penny.
