A stunning period in Irish life comes to a climax. Four men stand before the High Court, charged with conspiring to import arms and ammunition illegally into Ireland. A Government Minister, an Army officer, a Belgian businessman and a proud IRA man. If found guilty, jail beckons. The entire country holds its breath.
