Overview

London, 10 July, 1998 - Elaine Moore's life is about to change forever. In a simultaneous raid, Irish and British police forces arrested the 21-year-old Dubliner and nine others for alleged terrorism offences. After four days of harrowing police interrogations, she was charged and sent to an all-male maximum security prison, where she was classified as a 'High Risk, Category A' prisoner. Elaine had to endure degrading strip-searches up to four times a day; confined to a cell for 19 hours a day; and transported under armed guard at all times.

Shocked and terrified, Elaine's mother Kathy instigated a massive campaign to fight for her release, involving Irish politicians, the media, international human rights agencies and solicitor Gareth Peirce, who famously represented the Guildford Four and the Birmingham Six.

For the first time ever, Elaine has broken her silence on those dark, lonely days of 1998. With exclusive extracts from Elaine's prison diaries, as well as interviews with those involved in her campaign, this is the first ever full account of her notorious case.
