“I remember the first day of the hunger strike and they came and left the food at the door of the cell. And I remember...looking around the cell and saying to myself, ‘this is the first day of the last day of my life.’”

-- Brendan Hughes

“It was only witnessing Bloody Friday. At that point I went over the edge I suppose...I mean it was a hamster wheel to hell. Not only did there seem no way off, I didn’t want to get off. I wanted to get on with it.”

-- David Ervine
