Hardback. The unique story of a lifelong and top-ranking member of the IRA. Born in Belfast in 1920, Joe Cahill has been an IRA man all his life. It has been a life of imprisonment, of hunger strikes, of being on the run, in safe houses, in action, and in talks and negotiations. IRA activists rarely speak about their lives or their organisation, but here Cahill gives his full and frank story, his viewpoint, his experiences - from Northern Irish prison cells of the 1940s when the birch and cat-o'-nine-tails were still in use, to the corridors of power in Washington DC when the Good Friday Agreement was being negotiated. This is the story of an extraordinary journey, Cahill's own life mirroring the growth, changes and development of the republican movement as a whole through more than 60yrs. of intense involvement. Illus., Bibliog. + List of Sources. 383pp. lge. 8v0. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in f. dw.
