Book Description
In the summer after the Anglo-Irish Agreement, when the tension was at a peak in Northern Ireland, Colm Tibn travelled along the Irish border from Derry to Newry. Bad Blood is a stark and evocative account of this journey through fear and hatred, and the legacy of history in a bleak and desolate landscape. Colm Tibn describes the ritualsthe marches, the funerals, the demonstrationsobserved by both communities along the border, and listens to the stories which haunt both sides. With sympathy and insight Bad Blood captures the intimacy of life along one of the most dangerous strips of land in Western Europe.
