Memoirs of Royal Irish Constabulary Constable, Jeremiah Mee

Constable Jeremiah Mee is noted in the annals of Irish history for being the spokesman for a group of RIC men in Listowel, who in 1920 stood up to their divisional commissioner Colonel Smyth, and refused to accept his policy of shooting any suspicious-looking Irishman on sight. This unique record, based on Mee's memoirs, presents a first-hand account of life in the RIC from 1910 to 1920.

It chronicles the changing relationship between the Irish people and the members of the force, gives a valuable insight into the changing attitudes of many RIC men during the War of Independence and includes a comprehensive account of the 1920 Listowel mutiny and its aftermath. It also provides an account of Mee's work for the First Dáil's department of labour where he worked after leaving the RIC and his involvement in the Belfast Boycott.
