About Bobby Sands
Bobby Sands was a notable member of the Provisional Irish Republican Army.
Though he first wanted to become a coach (bus) builder, threats from Protestant Ulster tartan gangs and attacks on his family caused Bobby Sands to join the Provisional IRA. Soon after joining, he was arrested and imprisoned for three years for possessing handguns. The same year Sands was released, his involvement with the IRA led to his return to prison. During this time, he took part in the “dirty protest” and hunger strikes. To raise public consciousness, he was elected to Parliament but died soon after of starvation.
