“She’s right y’know!”
Charlie Byrne’s are delighted to host the launch of Margaretta D’Arcy’s personal account of her struggle to open a debate on the misuse of Shannon Airport. Ireland’s Guantanamo Granny will be launched at Charlie Byrne’s on Saturday the 6th of February at 3pm by Little John Nee.
What’s a peace-loving Irish granny to do when she finds that her supposedly neutral State is allowing her local airport to be used for war and torture by the Americans? What’s she to do when the Irish State refuses to listen to her and other concerned citizens or to accept wheelbarrows full of ecidence that Ireland’s neutrality and international law is being breached? In the case of Margaretta D’Arcy she decides to open a conversation with the State by any means necessary.
Ireland’s Guantanamo Granny is a first-hand account of D’Arcy’s struggle to open a debate on the misuse of Shannon Airport. It takes us on an inspiring and often bitingly funny journey from her roots in the peace movement, to discovering Ireland’s dirty little secrets, though to direct action, courtroom drama and imprisonment.
This is sure to be a launch to remember. Ireland’s Guantanamo Granny will be available to buy at Charlie Byrne’s for €12.95. For more information about the launch, or to reserve a copy, simply contact us.
