IRA Witness Statement


I was contacted by a family member who believes that Jack Connors, his uncle would have been 20 at the time, was involved. And that Tom O'Grady (28) would have also been involved. In the account of the killing in Tom Toomeys book, it mentions they were inexperienced and the killing was not carried out properly and hence the delay in Jack Moloney death.(He seemed to have lived for a few hours).
