Hear the story of a group of 155 Irishmen living in New Zealand in WWII who refused to be conscripted into the armed forces.

For the author of True To Ireland, Peter Burke, this is a deeply personal story because his father was one of the leaders of a group set up to persuade the government to allow the men to stay in New Zealand but not serve in the army. This is the untold story about a group of brave patriotic Irishmen.

Copies of True to Ireland will be available for purchase.
