Defying the strict rules of the prison, he maintained these diaries from December 1956 to September 1962." "Against the odds, these have survived. Written in Irish, they give a reflective account of his daily lot (prison regime; IRA command structures; education; relations with his fellow prisoners and staff). This is an insider's perspective on the unfolding IRA campaign gleaned from newly arrived prisoners, secret correspondence with the IRA and the latest news reports on a smuggled and cleverly hidden transistor radio." "Within the bleak confines of of Belfast's Crumlin Road Prison he set down hopes, dreams and fears. These diaries became an indispensable tool to keep human dignity alive."--Jacket." ;
