Ireland Trilogy Gary J Byrnes

Ireland's terrifying past is brought to life

Three short stories set in Ireland. The first story, Perhaps A Few, happens just before Ireland's devastating potato famine of 1845-49. Troika is a story that happens in the dark 1930s, while Blitzkrieg Ireland 2016 considers what might happen during the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising, the event that led to Ireland's independence.

These stories are entirely speculative, creative fiction. It is a given that Ireland has had a pretty sorry history; Ireland Trilogy brings some of the formative forces into sharp focus.
