Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Henry Smart returns to Ireland for the first time since his escape in 1922. He is in Dublin, working in Barrytown as a school janitor. When Henry is caught in a bomb blast, his wooden leg gets left behind in the debris. He wakes in hospital to find himself a hero: the old IRA veteran who's lost his leg to a UVF bomb. It doesn't take long before the Provos come calling. They need men like Henry. They wheel him out at funerals and rallies, a heroic veteran of 1916. Henry is to find he will have other uses too, when the peace process begins in deadly secrecy.
