'A journey into our own psyche...Tim Pat Coogan has dug, Heaney-like, into the past while opening doors to faraway places.' Frank McCourt Chosen by Jon Snow as his Book of the Year, 2000. 'Tim Pat Coogan is an internationally respected journalist. Since his departure as editor of the Irish Press, he has become better known as a prolific historian who is among the most widely read in this country and abroad. His biographies of Eamon de Valera and Michael Collins have enjoyed wide success, while his work on the IRA and on the Northern 'Troubles' can be found in bookshops all over the world. 'Wherever Green is Worn, in keeping with his other works, is trenchantly written. The author is opinionated and unafraid of polemics. It is at once a maddening and a refreshing read. The reader is unlikely to remain neutral. I certainly wasn't...'[It] is an intellectually ambitious work, the result of great energy, imagination and painstaking detective work. Tim Pat Coogan manages to find 'the story' in about every country he has visited. This volume will stand as a challenging and controversial work on the Irish diaspora. It will also stand as a reproach to professional historians like myself who are quick to criticize and find fault, but slow to do the type of research necessary to write an influential and important book of this kind. It is a big book on a big topic. Don't just read it. Buy it and reread it. Dermot Keogh, The Irish Times "The definitive story of the Irish abroad.' Ireland on Sunday 'Amusing, interesting and often absorbing...Peppered with the kind of Irish humour that can make you laugh out loud.' Roy Greenslade, Guardian
