Is there much about the jail riposte? Fair play.

About two thirds of the book is about the Gaol . but the gaol is only there since 1796 . the history of Kilmainham goes back to the mid 600s.

Would love to attend riposte but have to work on Friday and can't make it back in time. Might try and send someone for me to pick up one at the discounted price though! :D
