Alfred Kidney


The Crown seem to have gone out of their way to demonstrate that this was an IRA killling. The County Inspectors report said that Kidney had been suspected of giving information about the IRA to the military. See RIC County Inspector’s Report, Cork City and East Riding, Feb. 1921 (CO 904/114, TNA). In addition a pevious attempt had been madeto kidnap him

There is no IRA witness statement and I cannot find a British inquiry
