New York - US

Aug. 30, 2011 - PRLog -- “My father was a good-living, no-nonsense tough patriot who was modest and very reluctant to talk about his experiences in war. My mother was gentle, good humoured and caring, and never complained no matter how hard life got.” Author Eamonn Sheridan writes lovingly about his parents in Me Father Was a Hero and Me Mother Is a Saint.

This true story of a large working-class family from North Dublin pulls no punches, as it details the senior Sheridan’s service with the IRA during the Civil War in 1922-23 and his time in jail. During World War II, Sheridan’s father joined the British Army and served with the 8th Army in North Africa, Sicily and Italy.

“My mother had 23 pregnancies. Eleven of us survived. She was evicted from our house due to non-payment of rent during a period when my father was posted missing in action and presumed killed.” This amazing story of a family’s survival during hard times will touch your heart.
