A member of a humble family, his birth coincided with the Easter uprising against the United Kingdom. The family situation of poverty persisted over time and the crash of 1929 showed Bob the harshness of the living conditions of the workers. Soon it was linked to the movements of the Irish political left, such as the Irish Republican Army (IRA), confronting the fascist-inspired Blue Shirts led by Eoin O’Duffy. In a skirmish with these he lost the vision of an eye.

At the outbreak of the Civil War in Spain, the death at the Battle of Jarama of his friend, Kit Conway, impelled him to join the International Brigades, he could not do it in a first attempt via Valencia, and he succeeded in a second crossing the Pyrenees on foot from France. Although the brigade cadres did not want to assign him a place at the front, he disobeyed the orders and, framed in the Connolly Column as most of his compatriots, fought on the Aragon front. In the spring of 1938 he was taken prisoner in Gandesa by the Italian unit of the Flechas Negras, together with the leader of the international brigades Frank Ryan, and he spent eleven months in the San Pedro de Cardeña concentration camp, near Burgos, where He was tortured regularly by the Francoist guards and interrogated by the Gestapo, and he managed to be released in an exchange of brigadist prisoners by Italians.

After returning to his homeland, he participated in the Second World War in the British merchant marine and, at the end, went to live in London. He married a Spanish woman and had a son, Julian Doyle, a well-known British filmmaker. The rest of his life was spent between the British capital, Ireland and Spain, where he traveled every year, even in the Franco dictatorship, visiting the conflict scenarios, especially Jarama and Brunete, taking political propaganda illegally.
