Product description


'What emerges is Brugha's complex attitudes towards violence. He was willing to lead a suicidal mission into the House of Commons to assassinate the people who he saw as directly responsible for the violence in Ireland. However, he removed names from Michael Collins' list of spies who were to be executed by the squad on what became known as Bloody Sunday.'; Fergus O'Farrell in the Irish Times.;'If you wiped out every Black and Tan in Ireland tomorrow, you'd have shiploads of them pouring in again, the day after. And if you wiped every soul of them out, double as many shiploads would come in, the day after that... To save Ireland, you have got to wipe out the guilty ones who sent the Black and Tans here. We have got to wipe out every member of the British Cabinet.';Fergus O'Farrell writing about one of Cathal Brugha's elaborate plans to wipe out the British cabinet.; 'Richard Mulcahy, in particular, has attempted to abjure his role in the mission. There are several reasons for this. Following the revolution, Mulcahy had a long career in politics with Cumman na nGeadheal and later Fine Gael, often viewed as the parties of law and order.';Fergus O'Farrell writing in The Irish Story;
