Dwyer, T. Ryle  

Tans, Terror and Troubles


Kerrys Real Fighting Story 1913-23.


Since Kerry's Fighting Story was published by the Kerryman in 1947, no attempt has been made to cover the period of the War of Independence and the Civil War in Kerry, which were fought with particular ferocity. 


This book seeks to fill a gap in providing a broad look at events in Kerry during the decade from the founding of the Irish Volunteers in November 1913 to the ending of the Civil War in April 1923.
