In the second recording, Chris Branley recalls his father’s IRA involvement and the effect this had on his family. He also relates several stories and shares a great insight into the Civil War in Ireland, his parents’ involvement and the events which took place in the Sligo area at that time. He shares a story about his mother, who died in 1993, burning her own hand-written documentation of the hard times she and her husband endured during the Troubles, and he recalls the day six men were shot on the mountain in North Sligo. His love for the country and his deep nationalistic spirit are evident in this recording.
