Songs of The IRA - Dominic Behan

$ 18.00

DOMINIC BEHAN was born on October 22, 1926. His father was a traditional Irish fiddler, his mother a folk singer. Born into a family of intensely partisan I.R.A. supporters (who have been jailed frequently for their political convictions) it was not surprising that he joined the Na Fianna h-Eireann (the Republican Boy Scouts) at the age of six, and was an active fighter for the I.R.A. at 16.

 

His activities on behalf of his political convictions have resulted in his being imprisoned, in Dublin and in London, four times between 1951 and 1954.

 

Following in the footsteps of his uncle, noted rebel songwriter Peadar Kearney, he has become one of Ireland's leading political writers, his published works including poetry, rebel ballads and political articles in leading Irish and British periodicals.
