About this Book

Author: Siofra O'Donovan

Date Published: 15-Oct-2020

"… Nobody would know from letters like these that Kevin was, by this time, up to his neck in the war against the British. Nobody knew that by November that very year he would have become one of the most iconic martyrs of the Irish independence movement, and that his signature "Yours 'til hell freezes" would become part of his mythology". Yours 'Til Hell Freezes is an intimate portrait of the young rebel martyr Kevin Barry, written by one of his closest descendents. Síofra's life was enriched by Kevin Barry's belongings - his shillelagh, his letters in brown ink, his Belvedere cap, his memorial cards, his copy books, secret British correspondence and letters to and from eminent figures about him. Kevin Barry was the first person to be hanged by the British after 1916 Rising, at 18 years old during the War of Independence. Although Kevin was young, he had a full life. This book brings new life to Kevin Barry, using material from family papers and the public domain. The detailed poignant descriptions of his final hours are gripping and chilling.
