Three Irish Republicans - James Monaghan, Martin McCauley, and Niall Connolly - were arrested at Bogota airport by the Colombian army, who alleged that they had been training FARC rebels, and were members of the IRA. Almost three years passed in which the three men were held in appalling conditions in several different Colombian jails, all the time in daily danger of assassination by fellow prisoners acting for right-wing paramilitaries, who had placed a price on their heads. Now, for the first time, James Monaghan tells the inside story of the Colombia Three: why they were in the demilitarized zone; what they discussed with the FARC rebels; how they survived the daily dangers of their time in prison. It is an extraordinary, unique account.
