Colm Toibin has called Thomas Moore 'the most influential figure in shaping the Irish political psyche'. In "Bard of Erin", Ronan Kelly tells the story of Moore's extraordinary life - from humble beginnings in Dublin to glittering social and literary success in London (at one point his popularity was eclipsed only by that of Sir Walter Scott and his close friend Lord Byron). Ronan Kelly's biography is a gripping and definitive account of a great romantic figure.
