By Ciarán de Baróid.
1972 was the most violent year of the conflict.
In April of that year, the author left his native Cork to take up a community post with the Ballymurphy Tenants' Association in Belfast. The following morning he woke up to a gun-battle.
Down North tells the story of the next four years, lived in the middle of a war. It is told with earthy candour, insight, empathy and humour.
"This book illustrates - with poignancy and humour - how individuals and communities resisted a period of intense military occupation" - Gerry Adams
"Down North provides an insight into the daily resistance and utter resiliance of a community at war" - Bernadette Devlin McAliskey
