Known to all as The General, Ireland’s most infamous criminal mastermind, Martin Cahill's life was the stuff of myth and urban legend.
Even in death, fascination with him has not waned: leading Hollywood actors have starred in several films on his life, and many books have been published, with his memory now owned by a public that either loathed or admired him.
Now, in this astoundingly frank memoir, his daughter Frances Cahill tells the story of the man she knew so well, offering remarkable insight into the private life of Martin Cahill and what it was like growing up in the shadow of such an infamous figure. Not seeking to defend or condone his criminal past, Frances Cahill here shows a side of The General the public has never seen before.
Neither Robin Hood nor Bogeyman, in this powerful recollection he is simply Martin Cahill, My Father.
