Irish Central has included Professor Bob Schmuhl's book, Ireland's Exiled Children: America and the Easter Rising, on its list of the five best Irish books to read on St. Patrick's Day.

They wrote the following:

Irelands Exiled Children

"A gripping and compelling look at the forces behind the Easter Rising in America by Professor Robert Schmuhl of the University of Notre Dame, an outstanding historian.

"Schmuhl illuminates a central period in Irish American history: how President Woodrow Wilson hoodwinked Irish Americans into believing he took their side; how the mainstream American media, The New York Times etc. supported the execution of the leaders; how poet Joyce Kilmer became one of the most unlikely voices of The Rising in America."
