The roads of Ireland now hum with the sound of fast-moving traffic. Two hundred years ago the sounds were of galloping horses and clashing swords. From their hide-outs, highwaymen would emerge, waylaying wealthy travellers and relieving them of their valuables before disappearing into the mountains.
'Stand and Deliver!' - Stories of Irish Highwaymen tells the stories of some of the men who terrorised parts of Ireland - Redmond O'Hanlon, Shane Crossagh, Cushy Glen, Proinnsias Dubh, Cormacke Raver O'Murphy, Charley Carragher, Shane Bernagh and Ness O'Haughan. While only a few highway-men ever became truly famous, there were scores, if not hundreds, who might be called the 'nearly men'. These men too are remembered in this well-researched and compelling record of times past.
