About the author

Eòsa Cerne

Eòsa Cerne is a freelance writer and political analyst with inside knowledge of Irish republicanism, including post-GFA. His expertise in the field provides an alternative understanding and clarity of Irish republicanism, based on his own experiences. Larkin, was born into the poverty of the 60's, in the front-room of a damp-infested home in the old Pound Loney. A house alive with cockroaches and fleas, and saw the walls inside held together by decades of wallpaper. The window of the bedroom he shared was always condensated, icicles hung from the frames throughout the winters, a sheet of ice covering the windowpane. Like many boys the streets that were his playground, soon became a battleground. He has fond memories of games shared with many of his childhood friends, some taken early in life, many to jail, others no longer around, and he treasures their memories.
