Much has been written about the heroes and martyrs of the Irish Rebellion - the hunted ones - in the terrifying days before and after the Easter Rebellion of 1916. In this stirring account, documented by excerpts from Monteith’s diary, photographs, newspaper clippings, and private papers, the truth about the mystery man of Banna Strand is forthrightly told. Florence Monteith Lynch, daughter of Robert Monteith, mystery man of Banna Strand, was born in Dublin. Her mother, the magnificent “Mollie” of this book, was of the theatre, and the Monteith children often appeared on the stage.
