St Enda’s is no ordinary school, and Padraic Pearse is no ordinary headmaster.
His pupils are inspired by his vision of freedom and an Irish Republic, and John Joe and his friend Roger see the Easter Rising as their chance to fight for Ireland’s freedom. But the two boys are horrified to learn that they are too young to take part.
They disobey orders to stay away from the city centre and quickly become caught up in the dramatic events of the Rebellion. Called to be brave and resourceful beyond their years, they witness events that change their lives forever.
Another dramatic blend of history and fiction from the inimitable Morgan Llywelyn.
