The glorious Revolution best books

I am going through a Glorious Revolution phase at the moment so was wondering what were the most interesting and most readable books that you have read about it?
And books about Ireland and the Glorious Revolution also.

I've seen these two recommended:

1688: The First Modern Revolution

The Glorious Revolution: 1688 - Britain's Fight for Liberty

Not sure how you'd find anything specifically about Ireland short of a work about Irish history that covered that period.

The book "Why nations fail" mentioned in one of its chapters about this event and viewed it through the lens of economic history, i.e. the clash of trading versus land-owning segments of British society in that period.
