Description

Searching for Sean is a commemorative publication taking a fresh look at the life and times of Sean Treacy, dubbed "The Greatest Fighter in Ireland", 100 years after his death during an intense shoot-out with British Intelligence Agents backed-up by Military in Talbot Street, Dublin, on 14October 1920. Covering his early life and influences, seminal events in the struggle for Irish Freedom including Soloheadbeg, Knocklong, ambushes and barracks attacks as well as the dramatic escape in Drumcondra, the publication searches various sources; books, military archives, newspapers and family stories to reveal Sean Treacy, a much loved son and fiance, guerilla fighter, loyal friend and staunch comrade who possessed an unrelenting determination to put 'Ireland over all' and help realise the vision of The Irish Republic proclaimed at Easter 1916.
