Synopsis: When Kate O'Hanlon started work at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast, it was an Emergency room like any other. So when the telephone rang on 26 June 1966 with the news that there had been a shooting in Malvern Street, no one in the department believed it. Soon such incidents became daily occurrences and the Royal went on to treat more victims of the Troubles than any other hospital. Kate spent sixteen years as nurse in charge of the ER, working through many of the darkest days of the Troubles. Told with her trademark blend of warmth, compassion, and humor, this is a fascinating and extraordinary story of nursing on the front line.

About the Author: Kate O'Hanlon (MBE) was born in the Markets area of Belfast. She worked in business for fourteen years before training to become a nurse. She worked at the Royal Victoria Hospital from 1966-1988, and was sister-in-charge of the casualty department sixteen years. Described on her retirement as 'the United Kingdom's best known casualty nurse' (Belfast Telegraph), Kate was chairman of the Royal College of Nursing's A&E Forum for nine years and secretary for three. She has travelled the world, attending conferences to talk about her experiences, and formed part of a un delegation that visited Gaza and the West Bank to assess the emergency facilities available to the Palestinian victims of the Intafada. She is a Dame of the Order of Malta.
