Before the Dawn; An Autobiography
In offering this account of my experience of some thirty years of life in the north of Ireland, most of them years of conflict, I am conscious that the conditions and circumstances of this conflict were created before I was born. The statelet set up under the British 'Government of Ireland Act' was established by force of arms against the will of all but a small, privileged section of the population of Ireland, its area determined on a sectarian headcount. Violence, exclusion, and denial of democratic and civil rights were indelible hallmarks of this statelet for a generation before my arrival on the scene. There has never been peace. In every decade of the statelet's existence, political opposition to its sectarian structures have been met with measures of suppression.
