Jerry Brien




1921 Shot

ORuairc Thesis Two suspected spies, Jerry Brien and Brian Turpin, were killed by the IRA in Tipperary at an unknown date in 1921. It would appear that they were killed during the War of Independence rather than in the Truce period. ‘The Upperchurch lads killed and buried two tramps, one of them was Jerry Brien a tinker from Newport ... they shot Brian Turpin who had a lame step and some said he was shot wrong’. Paddy Dwyer, (UCDA, EOMN, P17b / 119).
