Overview

The lives and times of 15 of Ireland's most notorious adventurers are told in these stories of audacious ambushes, sword and gun battles, daring escapes, hideouts and disguises, plots, betrayals, and raids. These action-packed stories weave historical events with local folklore and include the traditional Irish songs that developed around each highwayman's legend. Illustrated with drawings, maps, and photographs of still-existing landmarks, this book brings to life the tales of criminals whose lives sometimes ended brutally by hanging, beheading, or gunfire.

Author Biography: Stephen Dunford became interested in Irish highwaymen when, as a child, his grandmother told him stories about their ancestor, the highwayman William Crotty.
