Thread Name: Irish Civil War executions
Subject: Irish Civil War executions
The first official executions in the Irish Civil War took place on
on 17 November 1922 in KIlmainham Gaol , when James Fisher, Peter Cassidy, Richard Twohig and John Gaffney were shot by a Free State army firing squad.
Does anyone know f there are songs about these four men?
If so, I'd be grateful to be pointed in the right direction. Personally, I've never heard of any relating to these executions.
