Dialann Emily Porter - An Jailtacht
History is written by heroines who took bold stands against their oppressors in the name of justice. From Joan of Arc to Emmeline Pankhurst, from Rosa Parks to me, Emily Porter. This is the story of how, in the Summer of 1994, I stood up against my Oppressors (my parents) and how I came out the other side a changed person. It’s a tale of a lost teenager, of lost innocence, and a lost pair of white Pepe jeans (I’m not too worried about the innocence but I really miss those jeans). Our Price: : €12.00

Code Breaker
The incredible true story of the librarian, the Nazi spy and Ireland’s secret role in turning the tide of World War II.

When unassuming librarian Richard Hayes, a gifted polymath and cryptographer, was drafted by Irish intelligence services to track the movements of a prolific Nazi spy, Hermann Görtz, Dublin became the unlikely venue for one of the most thrilling episodes in Irish history.

In a complex game of cat-and-mouse that would wind its way through the city and its suburbs, Code Breaker reveals how Richard Hayes cracked a code that helped turn the tide of World War II, and uncovers a secret history of the capital that has remained hidden in plain view for the past 70 years.
