Launch of Eamonn Horkan's book on his father's involvement in three wars
The first volume of Castlebar man Eamonn Horkan's book, The Triangle of Violence, about the fascinating life of his father Paddy, has been launched by former Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
The ceremony took place at Horkan's Garden Centre, Turlough, and was a memorable occasion.
Eamonn's story covers 800 pages, the first volume containing the first 400 pages, and it outlines Paddy's role in the War of Independence as a volunteer with the Castlebar Battalion.
He was founder member of Fianna Fáil in Castlebar and was involved in local political affairs up to his death at the age of 93.
The book has been produced in Mayo by Declan Durcan Production, and printed by Cashin Printing, Breaffy Road, Castlebar.
