About the Author

Rob Collins was raised in a small Irish Catholic community where he grew up listening to his elders discuss the future of their country and debate the partitioning of their home nation. He is an Irish Historian and a student of the Gaelic language. Married to a retired teacher, he is the proud father of an elementary school principal and a grandfather of three. He was inspired to write after three trips to Ireland in the early 2000s. He became enchanted by the nation's many gifted poets, playwrights and writers and the stories they told of their countrymen's fight to free themselves from the yoke of British religious and political domination
