The rise and fall of an IRA commander.

Brendan Hughes.

Douglas Dalby

With all the ingredients of a fast-paced thriller, Hughes reveals how a secret IRA unit planned and executed the celebrated helicopter escape from Mountjoy Jail in 1973 and carried out a series of audacious fundraising bank raids in the Republic. For the first time, he also tells the inside story of how the IRA planned its mass breakout from Portlaoise Prison in 1974.
