Laois Local Studies: The Last Days of the Terror November 30, 2022

Posted by guestposter in Uncategorized.

The latest from Laois Local Studies and as Terry Dunne, Laois Historian-in-Residence, notes:

on the local news at the time of the Truce – a Hurler turned RIC man, an RIC man turned IRA man, the shooting of suspected spies, imprisonment & torture, and a fella who got a job seemingly by falsely claiming to be one of the workers expelled from Belfast.

This particular post reflect on a dark part of the shared histories on this island but as he notes ‘History is the questions we ask of the past not an unfiltered presentation of the past —it exists in our present. ‘.
