This is the story of twenty-two Irish heroes and their epic struggle against injustice. Over the past 100 years twenty-two Irish Republicans, in the ultimate protest action of Hunger Strike, fasted to their death in the cause of Irish Freedom.
While not a definitive history of Irish hunger strikes, this book endeavors to tell the personal stories of each striker within the political context of the time of their strike.
Written by Kerry Republicans to mark the centenary of the death of the first, Kerry man Thomas Ashe, this book is written in tribute to men who proved the veracity of the words
‘A Nation which has such citizens will never surrender’.
