At thirty, she commenced giving her inheritance away to the poor. In 1972, the deadliest year of the Northern Irish

Troubles, she travelled to Ireland and joined the IRA.Sean O’Driscoll’s Heiress, Rebel, Vigilante, Bomber is both the page-turning biography of a remarkable woman and a ground breaking account of the inner workings of a terrorist organization.
