Author: Padraig Og O Ruairc

Date Published: 31-Jan-2009

Between 1918 and 1925, fifty-three republicans from Clare gave their lives in the struggle for independence and in the subsequent Civil War. In the first book to focus exclusively on Clare's republican history, Padraig Og O Ruairc explores the sotry of Clare's republicans from the events of 1798 to the end of the Civil War. The legends that have grown up around the activities of the Clare republican fighters have long warranted investigation, as have the claims of the crown forces who operated in the country, where fighting on the ground was often bloody and brutal. The author re-examines this long struggle and casts light uopn the true course of events, as well as remembering the casualties from both sides of the fight. As our living memory of the War of Independence fades, this book acts as a timely reminder of the suffering and the reality of the war in Clare.
