While Ireland Holds These Graves, The Story of an Irish Family During the 1916 British Tyranny, is the fateful story of a Dublin working-class family caught up in the Easter Rising of 1916. It is also the story of some leaders, especially women of that uprising, and of the spirits of past heroes who came to their aid. Finally, it is a story of Irish people who, generation after generation, and even after their martyrdom, rose up against British tyranny in Ireland. While Ireland Holds These Graves will make you proud of your Irish heritage.

Sean O'Hare, born into an Irish immigrant family in the Irish neighborhood of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, is all Irish. His paternal grandfather served in the I.R.A. during the Anglo-Irish War, was shot, and served time in a British prison.   Sean was a member of Irish support groups in the 1960s and 1970s: Irish Republican Clubs, Irish Northern Aid, and Irish National Caucus. His master's thesis, Troubles in the North of Ireland in the 1970s, resulted in numerous op-eds and newspapers, television, and radio interviews. He worked at radio station KPFA in Berkeley, where he hosted a weekly Celtic music program and interviewed newsworthy Irish people, including the late poet Seamus Heaney and the late I.R.A. leaders Rory O'Brady and Billy McMillan.   He taught semester-long classes on Irish culture, politics, and history; has been a guest lecturer in colleges, universities, intellectual clubs, and Irish cultural societies; and made presentations on Irish subjects at professional business organizations. In addition, Sean studied the Irish language, Irish step dancing, has played Irish football, worked at the Starry Plough Irish Pub in Berkeley, and had a production company, McNulty, O'Toole, and O'Hare. He's an active member of the Irish Club of Alaska.    He's traveled extensively in Ireland and was in Belfast during the I.R.A. hunger strikes in 1981.   He wrote a play on which this book is based that was performed at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, and read at the Last Frontier Theater Conference in Valdez, Alaska.   To say Sean O'Hare is all Irish, and overqualified to write While Ireland Holds These Graves, is an understatement!
