David Neligan joined the Dublin Metropolitan Police during the First World War. He was to become Michael Collins’ right-hand man in his intelligence network against the British Forces. At great personal risk, Neligan was able to pass vital information to Collins, who himself was leading a life of great danger from all sides. This work covers in every detail the treacheries, heroisms, excitements and dangers of that time.
