The Men Will Talk To Me: Galway Interviews by Ernie OMalley O'Malley, Cormac, O'Malley, Ernie

ISBN: 9781781170625

For the first time in published form, The Men Will Talk to Me: Galway Interviews chronicles the experiences of the Galway-based survivors of the War of Independence and the Civil War, recorded in the hand-written notebooks of Ernie O'Malley. Many of the individuals would not talk about their experiences, even to their own families, but were willing to talk to Commandant General O'Malley, the senior surviving Republican military commander who took on the task of preserving the memories of these participants. The resulting O'Malley notebooks provide an unrivaled insight into this important period of Irish history, including the attack on Clifden and the reality of life on the run for the Galway IRA volunteers.
