"An essential reference work for the study of Ireland."- Library Journal
"This is an essential reference work for the study of Ireland. The database is affordable for all types of libraries and offers just the right complement of bells and whistles. Although the well-known biographies are available from any number of biographical resources, for serious studies of Ireland the breadth of content here is invaluable and will attract scholars, journalists, teachers, and general readers alike." - Library Journal eReview: Biography, Apr 15, 2012
