Frank Lawless was one of the most dynamic regional leaders of the revolutionary period. Born into a farming family in Swords, county Dublin, in 1870, he followed his grandfather and father into nationalist politics, before becoming central to the republican movement in North county Dublin. Although most of his political life was spent in prison, as a result of his prominence in the 1916 Rising, it was cut short with his untimely death on 16th April 1922 after a road accident.  “A Dangerous Man: Frank Lawless and the War of Independence in Fingal” gives us an insight into his life, politics and the legacy he left.  We see the role he played in the cultural, political and sporting life of in Fingal from his early years to his death.
