Sullivan served twice a Member of Parliament, first for Louth and in for Meath, taking over the seat from Charles Stewart Parnell. Sullivan was also a prominent lawyer and Queen's Council. The Story of Ireland includes many pen and ink sketches of the Irish nationalist acquaintances of Sullivan, including John Mitchel and Michael Davitt and towards the end of the publication a sketch of Patrick O'Donnell.
