Charlie May is Gerry's great- or grand-uncle, whose war diaries were discovered in an attic. These are now published as TO FIGHT ALONGSIDE FRIENDS in hardback and paperback by Harper Collins, and have received great reviews. Charlie was killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, the centenary of which will take place on 1 July.

Gerry Harrison was born in India and grew up in England and Ireland. His formative years were spent in London during the “Swinging 60s”, where he was first an actor and then chose a career in the TV and Film industry. It was as a producer he started to write, published at first in newspapers and magazines.

He and his wife came to Clare in 2007, enjoying the tranquillity here compared to the pace of London. With a long ambition to run a bookshop he opened Banner Books in Ennistymon, and is now delighted to see Jessie Lendennie's Salmon Publishing at the same premises in Parliament Street.


Gerry has written one previous book, about postwar Irish emigration to London, called ''The Scattering'', which was published in 2004, and is now completing a biography.

NCHS Cormac's lecture


The North Clare 1916 Centenary Group lecture will be held on Thursday 12th May at 7.30 pm in the Courthouse Gallery


   Public lecture by author and historian, Cormac Ó Comhraí on the life and times of Peadar Clancy from Cranny, Co. Clare. Peadar played a leading role in the 1916 Rising and the Irish War of Independence.


Born into a Fenian family in Cranny, west Clare, Peadar Clancy was one of the most significant revolutionaries to emerge from Clare during the twentieth century. He became involved at a young age with both Sinn Féin and the Gaelic League. A draper by trade he moved to Dublin in search of work. There he joined “C” Company, First Battalion of the Irish Volunteers. He fought in the Easter Rising, distinguished himself because of his bravery and was promoted in the field. Clancy was one of those sentenced to death after the Rising. He was spared, however, and was imprisoned in Britain. From then on he became an increasingly significant figure within republicanism. He was highly respected by the leadership and popular among the rank and file members of the IRA. He was also one of the militants who were determined to force a revolution and counted Dick McKee, Michael Collins and Dan Breen among his close friends. By 1920 he was Vice-Brigadier of the Dublin Brigade of the IRA. By the autumn of 1920 he was IRA Director of Munitions and a key planner of the attack on British intelligence agents on Bloody Sunday. Clancy was arrested hours before the Bloody Sunday attacks were to take place. Controversially he was killed in British Custody the following day. Official reports alleged that he attempted to escape but republicans challenged this alleging torture and murder.



Atlantic is an engrossing piece of truth-seeking, visually stunning and crafted with clarity and insight. It was an honour to be involved.” – Brendan Gleeson
