Stories of Irish families tearing themselves apart when at War over Wills.

A fascinating account of the battles that have erupted in Ireland over the last will and testament of such luminaries as the businessman Gordon Lambert, who made about 80 wills in his declining years, and the 'Black Widow' who fought a 20-year battle to get her sisters-in-law out of their Blackrock mansion.

Historical stories include the role that the will of Kitty O'Shea's 'Aunt Ben' played in bringing down Parnell and the dispute over Sir Hugh Lane's will which led to a long-running diplomatic row between Ireland and Britain over the ownership of his art collection.
