About this title


The Irish Military Intelligence Service is often referred to as G2. Michael Collins was the first Director of Intelligence and during the War of Independence, the IRA succeeded, for the first time, in the intelligence war against the British army and the Royal Irish Constabulary. Drawing heavily on Irish intelligence records, many disclosed for the first time, this compelling book fills a gap in the history of Irish intelligence and some twists and turns in Anglo-Irish relations.

About the Author:

Maurice Walsh served forty years in the Irish Army until his retirement as Colonel in 1998. During his career he served throughout the Army, the Military College and Defence Force Head-quarters. His service included duty with UN forces in the Congo, Cyprus, South Lebanon, and lastly with the EC Monitoring Mission in the Balkans. A qualified intelligence officer, he guardedly researched this book, bearing in mind the Official Secrets Act. He was conferred with a PhD in 2008 at University College Cork.
