History; General Tom and Leslie Barry Commandant of the Third Cork and later Chief of Staff of the IRA, Tom was the most brilliant of the field generals. His West Cork flying columns made hell on earth for the Black and Tan. A genius at welding an inspiring men and a fearless fighter, General Tom is a living legend.
Leslie, a Dubliner, was in the GOP during the Easter rising as a nurse and messenger, slipping in and out disguised as a schoolgirl from a nearby convent, for years she was the president of the Irish Red cross. Michael Collin’s prediction; The Irish English Treaty split Sinn Fein and the IRA down the middle. On the night in London when Michael Collin signed the treaty he was to prophesy his own end in a letter he sent to a friend. When you sweated, toiled, had mad dreams, and hopeless nightmares you find yourself in London’s streets, cold and dank in the night air. Think- what have I got for Ireland? Something what she has wanted these past seven hundred years? Will she be satisfied at the bargain?
Will anyone? I tell you this – early this morning I signed my death warrant.
