KIRKUS REVIEW

A sainted Irish Revolutionary, Sean Rogan has spent 12 of his 40 years in and out of the English Brig. He makes a final escape via a ventilating shaft and with the help of the ""Big Man"" in the Irish Revolutionary Army. But Colum O'Moore has shrunk through the ravages of cancer although he still seems to be carrying on the good fight. He persuades the reluctant Rogan to mastermind an attack on a mailtrain for funds for the IRA. There's plenty of bawdy, bloody action, a double-double cross, a fair colleen, a sympathetic policeman and of course, God saves the good Irish. ""Ireland forever"" but this zips by in a minute.
