    If you execute 77 men you can expect to make additional enemies who will exact efficient revenge.

    Eamon De Valera was taken aback by the brutal death of his political opponent and he swiftly moved to disassociate both himself and his party from this violent and gratuitous deed
    Typical backsliding from that slimey git.

    Stoke up tensions then claim innocence when theres a reaction to his words. If only he had of joined Collins and O'Higgins.

    Thanks Catalpa.

    Seems to be a case of living by the sword and dying by it. as so many great Irishmen and woman have been fated to do.

    I am sure he was Tom O'Higgins grandad but maybe uncle.
    Given ages. I'll go googling.

    He was Kevin O'Higgins' nephew
