This is a genuine attic manuscript, discovered shortly after the author's death in 1990. It is an absorbing true story of a young man growing up in County Kerry over a 23-year period (1902 1925). the remarkable recall and eye for detail, Jeremiah Murphy relates his personal involvement in these years of great political, social and historical change in his native Kerry and Ireland.

Old rural habits and customs, which have long since died away, are also recalled with affection. A vivid account is given of his involvement in the War of Independence and the Civil War. and is all the more revealing because events are seen through the eyes of a 'foot soldier' rather than a military or political leader.
