About the book:

'Voices and the Sound of Drums' by Patrick Shea is human, honest, witty and stylish. Subtitled "An Irish Autobiography", it is a rare insight into Irish social and political history. It is also the remakrable success story of the son of a native Irish-speaking RIC Kerryman. Patrick She was only one of two Catholics in the history of the Northern Ireland Civil Service to attain top rank as Permanent Secretary. His reminiscences of boyhood are vivid and authentic, and the book ranges from a fascinating description of the Templemore "bleeding statues" episode to a sombre account of the UWC strike - "the most frightening experience of my life".
