Overview

Grandpa the Sniper: The Remarkable Story of a 1916 Volunteer by Frank Shouldice

Drawing on prison letters, personal diaries, and secret military and police files, Grandpa the Sniper retraces a remarkable journey by a reluctant hero. Frank Shouldice was a GAA footballer before violence broke out in April 1916. He fought through some of the Easter Rising, was incarcerated three times, was under close surveillance by The Security Service (MI5), and led a daring four-man escape from a Welsh prison. Extensively researched and written by his grandson and namesake, it's a fascinating trawl through a very personal history. "A fascinating trawl through a very personal history."--Irish Gazette "A stirring story of Easter Week that has gone untold until now."--Irish Voice
