Summary
  • "During the thirty years of troubles in the North of Ireland, only a handful of people have become symbols of true courage. Fr Aidan Troy is one of these. Although he knew little of the North, within months of his arrival in 2001 in the Catholic Ardoyne community, he had witnessed one of the most disturbing incidents in the North's recent history." "Young children, going to and from Holy Cross primary school, were subjected to some of the most shameful sectarian hatred and violence
  • Protestors taunted the children, their parents and teachers with comments about 'Fenian whores', as well as displaying pornographic posters, throwing balloons containing urine, and even pipe bombs." "This insider account of those shocking weeks does not make for easy reading. Nor does Fr Troy attempt to offer simplistic solutions, focusing instead on his unshaking belief throughout that the rights of children must be paramount."--BOOK JACKET
