    Default IRA burn Protestant orphanages to the ground in Galway

    ...... and asked for a particular boy, that he might be brought out and shot. They then went to the master, and told him to clear out. They then went to the diningroom, and asked for the boy in charge. The eldest boy stood up. The boys were paraded, and some who were working in the fields were rounded up. The master and the boys were taken away to different parts of the premises. The matron showed great courage. She pleaded to the men to spare the lives of the boys, and asked for a guarantee for their safety. Surrounded by these fully armed barbarians she asked why this was being done, and the answer was because the boys were being taught loyalty to England, and the orphanage had sent many of the boys into the great war. The whole place was then burnt to the ground, and 33 boys and 25 girls were left absolutely stranded. Anti-Treaty IRA burn Protestant orphanages to the ground in Galway

    Excuse my ignorance, but what is the point of this post ?

    Do you have a comment on it ? Are you suggesting a debate around it ? What ?

    Just to be fair, I am going to report the post as I feel it is designed to troll.. I'll remove my request if you can show due reason as to why you posted it in the first place

    Could the person who opened this thread explain to us what he would like us to do? Is this a discussion on history? Is it to do with the service now being provided by the I Times?

    To simply copy and paste a report from 1922 without comment or reference to the point you are trying to make is rather silly.

    Everyone there that night aremost probably dead. If the point is to show the 1919-1923 IRA/Free State Army were ruthless, well we all know that.
