Dick Tynan couldn’t sleep. He was plagued by symptoms of anxiety and found it increasingly difficult to focus on the day-to-day of running a business. His furniture shop on the Dublin quays was doing fine. But he knew there was a problem. He needed to prove that the terrible thing he was remembering had actually happened.

In Finding Private Branch, Dick Tynan’s daughter Mary Elaine navigates her father’s past as an American GI soldier as they search for Private Howard Branch, Dick’s comrade and friend, who died in an accident almost 60 years ago.

But the military say he didn’t.
