On 15th August 1969, nine-year-old Patrick Rooney became the first child killed as a result of the Troubles – one of 186 children who would die in the conflict in Northern Ireland.
Fifty years on, these young lives are honoured in a memorable book that spans a singular era.
Children of the Troubles recounts the previously untold story of Northern Ireland’s lost children — and those who died in the Republic, the UK and as far afield as West Germany — and the lives that might have been. Based on original interviews with almost one hundred families, as well as extensive archival research, this unique book includes many children who have never been publicly acknowledged as victims of the Troubles, and draws a compelling social and cultural picture of the era
