Very rare banned book.

In 1985 here in Ireland a book called ” Smack, was released it follows the then drug culture which was once in Ireland at the time as well as providing plenty of names of so called drug pushers. This book was then taken of the shelves due to the nature of its content.

Two Irish journalist wrote this book and they are Sean Flynn and Padraig Yeates, both of these journalists worked for various newspapers here in Dublin City, in the 1980’s and it was here working for these newspaper’s they covered crime.

Today almost 32 years later its nearly impossible to pick up a copy of that book, Smack. There is a couple of people selling this book on line in the UK and they are asking £60.00 for this book. Because the book was taken of the shelves after its first run no re- runs where printed so this alone has contributed to the lack of supply of these books. This book was printed by a Dublin Based publisher known as Gill and Macmillan. The book itself has 341 pages of reading in it as well as photographs from well known drug pushers and or their associates involving allegedly selling drugs.
