The retired Editor of Section Ireland, Brendon Colvert, has written a book, which will
be available from late June. On My Honour is the historical account of a grave
injustice inflicted on an Irish policeman, his courage and persistence to have his
good name restored over a period of 70 years and his final triumph; William Geary
lived for 105 years, was the last man standing of the founder members of the Garda
Síochána and was awarded a Knighthood of the Holy Sepulchre.

The book has received accolades from distinguished authors and commentators; it
will appeal to police, historians and advocates of justice. See Appendix ‘A’.
