The Wild Geese Virtual Síbín with Cormac O'Malley

From Easter 1916 until the bitter end of the Civil War, County 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.

We hope you enjoy the above video which was broadcast LIVE here at TheWildGeese.com on Saturday, February 8, 2014 with attorney, editor, and author Cormac O'Malley.  Cormac is the son of the late notable officer of the 1920s IRA, Ernie O'Malley.  Along with Mercier Press, he has published "The Men Will Talk to Me: Kerry Interviews by Ernie O'Malley." 

Our live broadcasts from The Wild Geese Virtual Síbín give us all an opportunity to interact and learn from some of the "movers and shakers" in the worldwide Irish community.  We always encourage our members to use the live chat function here on the site to submit questions, comments, and requests during our live hangouts in The Síbín.

Our sponsor for this session in The Virtual Síbín is Mercier Press: Irish Publisher - Irish Story.
