Red Hugh The Kidnap of Hugh O'Donnell by Deborah LissonThis is the extraordinary true story of Red Hugh O'Donnell - kidnap, gaol, dungeons, escape Ireland in 1587 was a tough place. The old Irish clans struggled desperately to hold on to their lands. With the Spanish Armada threatening her in the background, the English queen, Elizabeth I, set out to subdue them. A few weeks before his fifteenth birthday, Red Hugh was captured and taken to Dublin Castle. He was held as hostage to ensure the good behaviour of his father, chief of the powerful O'Donnell clan of Donegal. After several years, one freezing winter's night the chance of escape seemed to come at last. But there were great risks.
'A true story and a ripping yarn.'
'Warring chieftains, castle dungeons, camaraderie and stoic endurance are all elements in this story of adventure and derring-do.'
'A true story, a ripping yarn, and a love story with Irish history.'
