South County Dublin was affluent, often loyal and sometimes republican. Encompassing southern suburbs of the metropolis as well as outlying towns and villages, it provides a view into the conflict away from the classic centres that have often attracted most attention. “In writing the story of the 6th Battalion, Dublin Brigade, IRA, James Brady has filled in another part of the history of the struggle for Irish independence.
