Up Like A Bird – The Rise and Fall of an IRA Commander

Brendan Hughes’ gritty memoir charts his rise through the ranks of the IRA in the early 1970s. Hughes reveals how a secret unit planned and executed the celebrated helicopter escape from Dublin’s Mountjoy Jail and carried out a series of audacious bank raids to fund the organisation’s armed resistance to British rule. For the first time, he also tells the inside story of how the IRA planned its mass breakout from the maximum-security Portlaoise Prison.
