    Ernie O'Malley - Quotes from On Another Man's Wound

    Writing about 1916 ‘In the morning smoke could be seen, and flames, It was terrible to watch. Why had I not known about the fight earlier? I thought of all the chances I had had of joining the Irish Volunteers; instead I had laughed and scoffed. Now, when I wanted to help I could not. A Dublin Fusilier, a friend, came to visit us during the day. He drank his large glasses of whiskey and was eagerly listened to. He was an authority. His officers had told him, ‘Every man you see in green uniform, regard him as a German ...
