On a rooftop near O'Connell bridge, a republican sniper lay watching, Beside him lay his rifle and over his shoulders was strung a pair of field glasses.
He was eating a sandwich hungrily. He hadn't eaten nothing since morning.He had been to excited to eat.He finished the sandwich, and, taking a flask of whiskey from his pocket, he took a short drought. Then he returned the flask to his pocket. He paused for a moment, considering whether he should risk a smoke. It was dangerous. The flash might be seen in the darkness, and there were enemies watching. He decided to take the risk. He struck a match and quickly put it back out almost instantly a bullet whizzed by he puffed a few times the quickly put it out and move to the left.
Cautiously he peered over the parapet and a bullet zoomed past him, he dropped quickly he knew where it came from it was opposite of him. He rolled over quickly to a chimney stacked and he looked over the parapet but there was nothing to seen. Just then an armored car came across the bridge and slowly up the street. It stopped across the street the sniper heard the dull panting of they motor, His heart beat faster and faster he wanted to shoot at it but bullets would not penetrate the metal on the car. Then an old lady came around the corner and began to talk to the man in the truck pointing to where the sniper lay.
The turret opened a mans head and shoulders appeared. The sniper raised his rifle and fired the mans limp body fell over the side of the turret the old lady squeeled and he quickly shot her and she fell in a ditch lifelessly.
From the other roof a shot rang out and the sniper dropped the rifle with a curse he wretched to pick up the rifle his forearm was dead he's been hit. He felt his arm and the blood was oozing out he quickly grabbed his first aid kit and got a bandage out and a bottle of iodine he opened the bottle of iodine and let it drip on the wound he then wrapped it with the bandage.
He placed his cap on the end of his muzzle he stuck his rifle up enough where the cap was visible he heard a shot ring and his hat fell off he tilted his rifle forward and let it slide down the roof letting his arm hang across the roof he then let his arm slide down the roof. He sneakly looked over the roof to see his opponent standing beside a chimney he quickly lifted up his sidearm and shot the other sniper stood there for a moment then he fell to the street. The sniper then climbed off the roof and approached the body he rolled the body over and saw it was his brother.
