With the outbreak of WW2, the Irish government introduces internment without trial for all suspected IRA members, and Bernard Carroll is swept up with hundreds of others and held in a ramshackle internment camp on the plains of the Curragh. The camp is packed with left-wing revolutionaries, civil war veterans and republicans, all held without trial.
There’s one catch – they can leave any time they want, provided they are willing to renounce violence and take an oath of loyalty to the Irish government. They stay.
