A true story of two brothers living in the heart of Dublin, caught up in the cauldron that was the 1916 Rising. Drawn into the fight for Irish freedom as volunteers, this book tells the story of their experiences of the carnage that was the War of Independence and the Civil War through the eyes of Sam as he becomes member of “the squad” and then the National Army. A love forged in uncertain times.

This is a coming-of-age story for these two young men set in uncertain and dangerous times. With the end of the war, these brothers rose to fame on the international stage as footballers for the Irish Free State.
