Pádraig Ó Fathaigh (1879–1976) was a lifelong Gaelic Leaguer in Galway. Already an Irish volunteer before 1916, Ó Fathaigh was arrested on Easter Tuesday. He spent the next year undergoing penal servitude, the first of four terms of imprisonment between 1916 and 1920. When at liberty, he acted as an Intelligence Officer in South Galway and Mid–Clare. His hand-written recollections illuminate life ‘on the run’ and in prison, and will interest all students of the Irish Revolution and the Gaelic Revival.
