The Flight of the Bald Warriors - the story of a rural Irish family at the turn of the Twentieth Century - is a 166 - page book of historical note through photographs and words. It details the story of the Mollahan family from a rural townland - Leganomer in the parish of Aughavas in County Leitrim. It gives the context of the area in post famine times and a brief history of the family name. The book tells the story of John and Anne Mollahan, who married in 1887, through the lives of their children. They had ten children born between 1887 and 1907. The Flight of the Bald Warriors details the social and economic circumstances of this family. It outlines the reality of emigration for this generation and its affect on the area and people left behind. Seven of the ten children emigrated to the United States. The story documents the lives of each of the ten children through the Twentieth Century. This story is typical of many rural Irish families of this time and as such is of historic significance to the general Irish and Irish American populace.
