The War of Independence story that no one has told, based on the testimonies of these extraordinary women. Elizabeth Bloxham, a protestant teacher, pamphleteer, radicaliser. Peg Flanagan – waitress, gun runner, spy, and witness to Bloody Sunday. Bridget Fitzpatrick, a central figure in the ambushes at Knocklong and Soloheadbeg. A telegram from her that read Greyhound On Train was instrumental in securing the escape of Sean Hogan in the famous ambush at Knocklong.
