With The Volunteers, he held the Mendicity Institute on the River Liffey for over two days. He was executed by firing squad on May 8 in Kilmainham Jail. This book, part of the ‘16 lives’ series, is a fascinating and moving account of his life leading up to and during these events.

It follows his life, from his birth in Dublin, to his time as a railway clerk in Limerick. Finally it outlines his move back to Dublin, his joining The Volunteers, the Easter Rising, his imprisonment and execution.

This book is a fascinating and moving insight into a man who sacrificed his life for his country.
