“And we will honour 5,000 of our more illustrious dead with the launch of Mike Lennon’s magnum opus A Dictionary of Roscommon Biography. This magnificent work took him 20 years to complete.”

Patsy McGarry’s ‘In a Word’, Irish Times, Saturday, June 20, 2020

“A new magisterial publication, A Dictionary of Roscommon Biography, has been published by Cloonmurray native Michael Lennon. This wonderful publication chronicles and celebrates the live and times of eminent Roscommon people through the ages and is a voluminous publication reflecting the history, heritage and culture of the county.”

Darragh Kelly, Roscommon Herald, Tuesday, July 14, 2020

“Mike, a passionate Roscommon man, is extremely generous with his time, utterly meticulous in his research. His ‘Dictionary of Roscommon Biography’ is an extraordinary publication. Basically it’s a collection of biographies of deceased prominent Roscommon people who had significant careers in Roscommon. There are 5,000 individual entries in a book which spans over 900 pages. The book will be a brilliant resource for people for decades to come.”
