Christopher O'Sullivan

 

 

 

IRA Witness Statement About the end of the Summer, 1920, a raid for mails was made at Waterfall, which resulted in the capture of a letter from Nagle, a local postman, to a man by the name of O'Sullivan, an ex-British soldier. They arrested Nagle, who gave all information, also a photo of O'Sullivan and details of the place in Cork City where he was to meet him. Leo and some others went there instead of Nagle and shot him dead. Later Nagle was also tried and also shot. Nagle had been in the R.I.C. and actually had a brother still in the Force and stationed at Tuckey Street Barracks in Cork City.
