Hi All,

I can only remember the bit "The rested Father McGrory an RC Clergy man, but they coudnt find him guilty of the smashing of the van.

This has been part of our families upbringing, as my Grandfather was one of the policemen on that day.

If you go to the Prison wall in Castle Street, I believe it is still there, about 2 metres from the southern end you should be able to see one of the many bullet marks on the wall, it is about 1 1/2 metres from the ground.
