Sean Lemass

Present at shooting Of Baggallay at 119 Baggot Street

John Horgan suggested that Bloody Sunday was the one day that many old IRA men ‘ fell silently defensive about’ ; that Sea´n Lemass cut short an unwanted inquiry about his actions with the ‘ curt observation that ‘‘firing squads don’t have reunions’ ’’.

Lemass was arrested in December 1920, and interned at Ballykinlar, County Down.
