"Irish Republican Ex POWs Donal Donnelly, Arthur McCarroll, Jim Devlin and Jim Darcy recall their time imprisoned in Crumlin Road Jail in the 1950s and 1960s. They were imprisoned as a result of their involvement in 'Operation Harvest' also known as the Border Campaign launched by the IRA in 1956. All four men from Tyrone served various lengths of Imprisonment. Donal Donnelly was to escape on St Stephens Day 1960, never to be recaptured" (Donnelly's amazing escape is recounted in his book "Prisoner 1082"- LU )
