Tom Maguire was GOC of the Second Western Division of the Irish Republican Army from 1919 to 1923 in the War of Independence. He died in 1993 at the age of 101. His life story is vividly told by Ruairí Ó Brádaigh.

Dílseacht which means fidelity, loyalty and sincerity is the story of Tom Maguire whose life epitomised the resistance of all who have taken up arms against English involvement in Ireland over 800 years.

It tells of the War of Independence in the west and relates the painful internecine feuding of fellow countrymen. Tom Maguire never achieved office in government in later years though all the main parties wanted him to join them.

He rigorously maintained his allegiance to the oath he had taken in support of an All-Ireland Republic.
