Bobby Sands, the first IRA hungerstriker to die, was a prolific writer and story teller. He spent four and a half years in the H-Blocks of Long Kesh, most of his work being written on sheets of toliet paper with a biro refill in an excrement covered cell.

This is a small sampling of his work. I will add more regularly.

Poems:
