A sympathetic account of the short life of a courageous volunteer with the Irish Republican Army. Kevin Barry was tortured but gave unswerving allegiance to the cause of Ireland’s freedom. An inspiration to his comrades; a man of splendid character.

A short but detailed account of events leading up to the death of an 18 year old medical student. Excerpts from school essays show him to have been a thoughtful, confident young man with a capacity to express opinions on a wide range of subjects.

Young Kevin Barry who said: 'certain it is that the Irishman is much more imaginative than the phlegmatic Sassanach' was also capable of saying: 'idealism is an attribute of the soul and is a direct gift from God Himself. It consists in striving after the better things in life and often striving after glorious but unattainable objects.'
