Cormac O'Malley is the son of Ernie O'Malley, who died in 1957. Along with Mercier Press, he has published "The Men Will Talk to Me: Kerry Interviews by Ernie O'Malley."
From Easter 1916 until the bitter end of the Civil War, Kerry was embroiled in bloody conflict. Now, for the first time in published form, many of the county's main participants in the struggle tell their own stories. These were narrated to Ernie O'Malley in the late 1940s and early 1950s. During their lifetimes, these men were reluctant to recount their exploits, even to their own families, but were willing to speak to Ernie O'Malley, a respected and legendary IRA leader during the War of Independence and Civil War.
Cormac will be joining us in The Síbín with his cousin (and fellow member of The Wild Geese), Lisa Fortin Jackson, to discuss the book and the remarkable life of his father.
