May Moran only knew some sketchy details about her late uncle Patrick’s execution in 1921 that was until her aunt left her a leather case of papers which she had guarded for over 75 years.  What May found in the case took her on a voyage of discovery which led to a major Irish publisher releasing the book “Executed for Ireland, The Patrick Moran Story in the summer of 2010.

We are delighted to welcome May to and have posted an exclusive interview with her recorded not 200 yards from where she and her uncle Patrick were born and raised. Over the next week or so we will be adding some exclusive passages from the book, which May describes as a labour of love but is a fascinating insight into one mans participation during Ireland’s struggle for freedom.
