Fifty Dead Men Walking

Status: Completed

In the 1980s when Ireland was at its most treacherous, 19 year-old Marty McGartland was recruited by the British police to spy on the IRA. He lived his life under constant threat of exposure and subsequent guaranteed torture and death, but his information saved many lives and he enjoyed the buzz. Until one day he was discovered and forced to go into hiding. Inspired by a true story, to this day he is on the run.
