In the 1940s and 1950s Ernie O'Malley travelled around Ireland interviewing survivors of Ireland's struggle for Independence.

These interviews, now being made available to the public for the first, time give a fascinating insight into the times and the people who fought. Many of those who were interviewed were unwilling to talk - even to their own families - about their experience, but because O'Malley was such a well-respected figure they consented to be interviewed by him.

This book includes accounts of activities in many parts of Mayo and neighbouring parts of Roscommon and Sligo and most of those interviewed also fought against the Free State in the civil war.

The key events described took place in the early months of 1921 in places such as Kilmeena, Tourmakeady and Carrowkennedy.
